Amsterdam police are still investigating a stabbing which left two injured near a Center Street parking lot Sunday.

Police Chief Greg Culick said the victim allegedly pulled a gun on someone prior to being stabbed.

"So the stabbing may have well been self-defense and those pieces are all coming together right now but charges are pending," Culick said this morning.

Police said St. Mary's Hospital reported a victim with multiple stabbings at 2:10 a.m. Sunday morning.

Lt. Thomas Nethaway said a second call came in saying there was a disturbance on the south side.

The victim was transferred from St. Mary's Hospital to Albany Medical Center with, nonlife-threatening injuries. Nethaway said a second participant was treated for a head and hand injury at St. Mary's Hospital.

Police won't release names at this time.

"[It was] definitely a disagreement between two parties, but the allegations have to be run down and the leads have to be followed," Nethaway said.
