Taylor — Two people have been arrested in stabbings that happened Saturday at a graduation party at a rental hall, Taylor police said.

A 17-year-old male is dead and three others were injured, they said. 

Officials also said investigators executed search warrants at a location in Southgate related to the incident. In addition, they have submitted a request for charges to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office in connection with the stabbings.

The prosecutor's office says they are reviewing a petition for charges against a 16-year-old male. He is being held in the Wayne County Juvenile Detention Facility. 

The decision is expected to come on July 12.

The incident happened Saturday night at the Knights of Columbus hall at 24900 Brest near Telegraph, according to authorities.

Officers were called to the location just before 11 p.m. on reports of a large fight with a possible stabbing. The hall was being used for a private event.

Police found four people who had been injured. They were taken to a hospital to be treated. The 17-year-old died from his injuries, according to police. The other three victims had non-life-threatening injuries.
