Officials say three football players have been stabbed in a fight outside a dining hall on the Morgan State University campus.

University spokesman Clint Coleman said the players were stabbed Tuesday when someone began swinging a knife wildly.

Coleman says one of the players was slashed across the chest, another was cut in the cheek and the other in the arm. They were taken to a hospital. A suspect was taken into custody.

It's not immediately clear what started the fight.

This is the third instance of violence on the Baltimore campus in less than a week. On Friday, a male student was stabbed with scissors by his roommate after an argument over the cleanliness of their dorm room.

Early Saturday, an on-campus party was broken up after fights started.
