The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — Authorities say seven people have been injured in an apparent fight in Boston's Theater District, and police are looking for a suspect.

The Boston Globe reports that police Superintendent Bernard O'Rourke said officers responded to a report of a fight about 2:15 a.m. Sunday in the district, where bars and restaurants cater to night-life crowds and had just closed.

Police say people were stabbed with knives or bottles.

Police spokesman Officer James Kenneally said Sunday afternoon the injuries appear to be non-life threatening. Earlier reports had said one person was critically injured.

Emerson College, which has facilities in the area, alerted students that suspects were at large. The school asked students to report any suspicious activity.
