COVINGTON, La. (AP) — Police say six people have been arrested in a brawl outside of a Louisiana store and several people were taken to hospitals, including one person with multiple stab wounds.

Covington Police Chief Tim Lentz tells news outlets police responded to reports of a fight outside of 1STOP Grocery on Tuesday and were confronted with a large crowd and multiple altercations.

The scene was brought under control within two hours with the help of the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office and state police. Two others with minor injuries were also taken to hospitals.

Police say 30-year-old Chalmeale Gillin, a 16-year-old and two others were charged with offenses that include resisting an officer. Twenty-nine-year-old Britney Gillin was charged with aggravated assault and 39-year-old Latania Magee was charged with aggravated battery.

It’s unclear if the accused have lawyers.
