Tallahassee, FL - September 21, 2011 --

Blood is still spattered on the doorsteps where three people were stabbed.

Tuesday afternoon a fight between two teenage girls broke out in the parking lot at 506 McKeithen Drive.

At some point, the girls' mothers got involved in the fight. Police say Lubertha Harris pulled out a knife and started stabbing people.

Teona Thompson lives there and saw the whole fight. She said, "The parents should have took their kids and put them in the house, and not go into the other persons house and try to like get into an argument. They should have been the bigger person and stopped it."

One mother had what police call "disfiguring injuries" to her nose, cheek, fingers and more. Her daughter was stabbed in the back, cheek and forehead. And Harris was injured too. Harris is in jail now charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
