Sheriff's officials are investigating a gang-related stabbing outside of Canyon High School Friday afternoon.

About 3:20 p.m. deputies and a paramedic squad responded to a call of a stabbing outside of the school.

Two boys, who declined to give their names, said they were waiting on Nadal Street across from Canyon High for a friend to come out of the school, when they said they were attacked by three people.

"It's gang-related," said Detective Dan Finn of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.

He said the two victims were waiting for friends when they said they were attacked.

Shortly after the attack, Finn said deputies detained one 15-year-old boy, taking him into custody after the two victims identified him as one of the three attackers.

The other two were described by Finn as Hispanic youths.

One of the young men said the trio ran down the hill and attacked them unprovoked before fleeing the scene. He said he did not recognize the three.

The two suffered minor injuries.

One boy said he was a student at Canyon High, while the other said he was a student at Mission View Public School.
