Police in Saratoga Springs are investigating after a stabbing and shots fired incident early Saturday morning. According to authorities, a fight broke out on Caroline Street near Broadway involving 15 to 20 people just after 2 a.m.

A 26-year-old man was stabbed in the torso during the fight. The fight continued up Caroline Street until an unidentified person fired a handgun several times.

Officials are blaming the violent incident on gang members they say traveled to the Spa City from Albany.
