SEATTLE – Authorities say three men were stabbed in a homeless shelter in Seattle.

KOMO reports one man is in critical condition and two others in serious condition following the attack late Monday night.

Seattle Police and the Seattle Fire Department responded at about 11:45 p.m. in North Seattle.

The caller told dispatchers four men were inside one room at the all-male shelter when an argument began, and the suspect stabbed the three other individuals, causing severe injuries.

The suspect sustained minor injuries. He was detained by police outside the building and later booked into the King County Jail.
