Multiple people were reportedly stabbed in the parking lot of Sports Authority field after the Chargers-Broncos football game in Denver on Thursday night.

Initial reports by the Denver Police Department had four people stabbed, and at least one person hospitalized in critical condition. The stabbings were called into police at 11:55 p.m. ET, and the police department tweeted shortly after the incident, "Officers have parties in custody and are not currently looking for any other suspects at this time."

The police department also tweeted there is "no word yet on what precipitated this disturbance at Sports Authority Field."

The management company for Sports Authority Field released a statement Thursday night, per the Denver Post, saying, "Stadium Management Company is aware of an incident that occurred in a parking lot adjacent to Sports Authority Field at Mile High. We are currently working with authorities to gather more information."

The Chargers beat the Broncos 27-20 on Thursday night, handing Denver its first home loss of the season.
