Burien Transit Center fight; 2 taken to hospital

BURIEN, Wash. (AP) -- Officers say two people have been hospitalized after a fight Tuesday night at the transit center in the south Seattle suburb of Burien.

KOMO-TV reports (http://is.gd/1CUz0H) that officers say a man in his 30s and another man in his 40s were fighting when one man pulled out a knife and stabbed the other in the chest.

After the stabbing, officers say a third man stepped in and punched the man with the knife. The blow was enough to knock the man off his feet. He hit his head on the ground and fractured his skull.

Both injured men were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The third man was not arrested but officers were questioning him about the fight.
