Three people were injured in a daylight stabbing near TechBoston Academy in Dorchester on Monday afternoon, according to police.

Boston Police said the stabbing happened around 2:30 p.m. near Armandine and Washington streets. The victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries. One person has been arrested in connection with the incident.

According to Patrick Cleary, the head of TechBoston Academy, a physical altercation took place shortly after school dismissal at a nearby basketball court.

"School staff and BPS Safety Services noticed the commotion and immediately called 911 and notified Boston Police and Boston EMS to provide assistance," said Cleary.

Boston Public Schools Superintendent Mary Skipper said some students were involved in the incident.

"What happened today is incredibly tragic as we continue to see youth violence happening in our community. National and State statistics all remind us of how much our students are hurting. Right now, our focus is on all of the students involved, supporting them and their families, and the school's students and staff," Skipper said.

This is an active and ongoing investigation.
