MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Two 16-year-old girls were stabbed Tuesday afternoon outside the Old Navy on Poplar Avenue at the Poplar Plaza shopping center.

According to Memphis police, the girls were stabbed during a fight near the store.  Two other girls may have been involved.

Investigators said the two stabbing victims suffered injuries that were not life threatening.

A number of students, presumably from nearby East High School, watched as police began their investigation and as paramedics tended to the injured girls.

Several officials with Memphis City Schools were on the scene as well, but have yet to confirm any connection between those involved in the fight and East High School or any other school.
