SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Two men have been stabbed during Black Friday shopping at a central New York mall.

Syracuse police tell local media outlets the stabbings happened around 4:15 p.m. at Destiny USA.

Police and the mall’s management say the dispute began at a Macy’s store. It’s not immediately clear what sparked the confrontation.

Officers found one man stabbed in the abdomen and another man wounded elsewhere on his body. Both are in their 20s and were taken to a hospital.
