A house party in San Jose turned chaotic over the weekend and San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith was stabbed multiple times in the mayhem.
His injuries are considered minor, according The Associated Press.
“(We) are aware that Aldon Smith incurred minor injuries during an incident last night,” the 49ers said in a statement. “We are in contact with Aldon and thankful that his injuries were not more serious and that he is recovering comfortably. The 49ers are also in communication with local authorities as they gather information regarding the incident, and will reserve further comment at this time.”
According to The Sacramento Bee, deputies from the Santa Clara County sheriff’s office were called to a house party at about 2 a.m. on Saturday after receiving reports of gunshots. When police arrived, they found two people shot and another stabbed.
The Bee reported that all three were taken to the hospital with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.
A source told the Bee the stabbing victim was Smith. A spokesman for the Santa Clara County sheriff’s department, meanwhile, would not comment on the identity of the victims.
The party was so large — more than 100 people were estimated to be there — that deputies called for backup from the San Jose police and the California Highway Patrol, Sgt. Jose Cardoza told the Bee.
“It was a chaotic scene,” Cardoza said. “There was a lot of commotion, and no one knows where the gunshots came from.”
