A teen has been sentenced to 60 months in Oregon Youth Authority custody for stabbing two people over a Facebook fight.

The 15-year-old boy was arrested in March.

Police said the suspect agreed to meet one victim at his Hillsboro home to end their online argument. According to court documents, the victim brought another friend along for support, but they both ended up getting stabbed.

The first victim was stabbed in the stomach, hip and leg. The second victim was stabbed twice.

They were able to get up and run away down the street, yelling for someone to call 911.

Investigators found the knife they believe was used in the attack on a lamp table in the entryway of the teen's home. It was described as a folding style knife that was covered in blood with the three-inch blade open.

The name of the teen arrested in this case was previously released as he was facing Measure 11 charges of attempted murder and assault.

Last week, he pleaded guilty to charges of attempted murder, attempted assault and unlawful use of a weapon. However, the attempted murder charge was then dropped.

His remaining charges do not quality for Measure 11 mandatory minimum sentencing.

He was sentenced in court Thursday.

Due to his age, he will receive a hearing halfway through his sentence to determine if he will serve the remaining 2 1/2 years. 

This story was corrected to reflect the teen was sentenced to five years in Oregon Youth Authority custody.
