A boy was stabbed and another person was beaten Thursday afternoon in the Lincoln Park neighborhood on the North Side, fire officials said.

Officers responding to a call of a battery about 4:15 p.m. in the 2100 block of North Halsted found a 16-year-old boy with stab wounds and bruises, according to Chicago Police. He had gotten into a fight with another male near a basketball court.

The boy was taken in serious-to-critical condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, according to Chicago Fire Department Cmdr. Walter Schroeder. Another man was assaulted and also taken to Masonic in fair-to-serious condition.

Additional details were not immediately available.
