One man is dead, two people have been taken to the hospital, and a 16 year old boy is in jail after a stabbing in Arlee.
Lake County Undersheriff Dan Yonkin says the incident happened just after 5:30 a.m. on Monday at a residence off of Pow Wow Road in Arlee.
Yonkin says when law enforcement officers arrived, they found one man dead at the scene; authorities have not yet released the victim's name.
A second man and a woman were also at the residence, both with stab wounds; they were taken to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula.
The man was treated and released, but the woman remains in serious condition.
The 16-year old fled from the scene, but Tribal police caught him nearby and arrested him; he is facing a charge of deliberate homicide.
He remains in the Missoula County Detention Center and will be charged Tuesday in Lake County.
Yonkin says all the people involved are from Arlee.
