A white motorcycle stopped in front of a black car on Yucang Road in Guangming New District in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Three people armed with weapons hopped off the motorcycle and attacked the people in the car.

Luo, who lives in an apartment above where the incident took place, described the attack:

Some were stabbed were kicked, while those that ran away were chased and then stabbed. Victims that fell and tried to get back up were attacked again.

No word on how the two groups know each other. All three suspects involved in the incident have been arrested, police say. An investigation is ongoing.
