Of the five people stabbed, four have wounds ranging from serious to critical conditions, and one 17-year-old male victim died after the incident.

Two people were flown to a local hospital, and two people were transported to a local hospital by ambulance, St. Croix County Sheriff Scott Knudson told Fox News Digital.
