JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 15-year-old boy is in stable condition after he was stabbed once at a home on Jacksonville’s Northside.

A spokesperson for Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said they were called to a home near Sibbald Road and Fredericksburg Avenue after the boy’s father alerted police his son had been stabbed.

The 15-year-old was not at the home when police arrived but was being taken to the hospital by “other individuals,” JSO said.

Police learned there was a gathering at the home and then there was a dispute just before the stabbing. The boy doesn’t live at the home, police said.

Witnesses are cooperating with the investigation and a person of interest was identified.

No further information was provided but police said the public is not in danger.
