3 Modesto girls critically injured in stabbings

MODESTO, Calif. (AP) - Three girls are critically injured after one of them stabbed the other two before stabbing herself in the bedroom of a central California house.

Modesto police spokeswoman says the stabbing of two 13-year-old girls and an 11-year-old girl was reported around 1 a.m. Saturday.

She said one of the 13-year-olds appeared to have stabbed the other two before stabbing herself.

The circumstances surrounding the stabbings were being investigated.

Modesto City Schools Superintendent Pam Able told the Modesto Bee all three girls attend schools in the district. She said counselors will be available Monday morning at their schools.
