Four men hospitalized after slashing on Morris Ave.

Officials say a violent fight inside a Mott Haven Housing Project sent four men to the hospital this morning.



According to the NYPD, at around 1:45 a.m. a group of young adults were filming a music video outside the Patterson Houses when another group came up to them and began to fight.



Police say the two 19-year-old slash victims were transported to the hospital for medical attention. They say both teens were slashed in the face and suffered other injuries, but they are both expected to be OK.



Officials say an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old were hit by a vehicle when attempting to cross Morris Avenue and believe it is connected to the slashings.



Both pedestrians are in stable condition.



Police have not confirmed if the pedestrians are the suspects or are victims involved in the dispute, looking to run away from the violence.



Cops say the victims are not cooperating as much as they would like, but police are still investigating the crime.
