PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

One person was taken to the hospital after a stabbing early this morning in northeast Portland.

Police were called to the area of Northeast 12th and Tillamook to reports of four people fighting in the street.

When officers arrived, they found someone had been stabbed and was laying in the street.

The victim was conscious, breathing and talking with officers.

Police saw four people fleeing the scene while talking to the victim.

Three of the people were detained right away, and the fourth was found by a K-9.

Officers say it does not appear to be gang-related, but that drugs and alcohol appear to be factors.
