A young man was stabbed near an elementary school in Westminster Thursday afternoon, officials said.
The incident was reported between 1 and 2 p.m. near Finley Elementary School, according to Sgt. Cord Vandergrift of the Westminster Police Department.
The victim, described by police as a juvenile, was walking to the school to pick up a relative, when he was confronted by four people and was stabbed, officials said. The victim then ran to the school office and asked staff to call police.
"Anytime something happens near a school, it's very concerning," Vandergrift said.
The incident doesn't appear to have been related to the school, officials said, and the campus was not put on lock down.
