Three Carson City teenagers are behind bars after the stabbing of a 16-year-old as he slept. Investigators call it a gang-related incident.
Sheriff's Detective Dave Legros says the victim was asleep on the couch in his family home when two boys from a rival gang entered through an unlocked door and attacked him with pocket and kitchen knives.
Legros says the victim fought back, chasing them to his front porch.
His mother took him to a hospital where he was treated for seven stab wounds.
Two youths aged 14 and 15 were arrested at a nearby house for investigation of attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon and
burglary with a deadly weapon.
A 17-year-old woman was charged with trying to hide the two teens.
