Johnson County Sheriff's Office booking logs show Overland Park Police have arrested two men. The first, a 55-year-old, Overland Park man was mentioned by name as officers were beginning their investigation. He was arrested around 5:30 Friday morning.

Officers also arrested a 39-year-old, Merriam man just before 6 p.m. Friday.

Both men were booked into the Johnson County Jail and are facing charges including attempted second degree murder. As the men are yet to be charged, Operation 100 News is not releasing their names at this time.

As of Friday morning, police said one of the victims remained in critical condition. The second victim was treated and released from an area hospital.

Original report:

Overland Park Police are investigating after two men were injured in an early-morning stabbing.

An employee of Mac's Sports Pub, 9617 West 87th Street, called police just before 2 a.m. to report a fight in the parking lot. The employee reported that one of the people involved was possibly armed with a knife.

Radio traffic indicated that officers encountered a "large" and "agitated crowd" in the parking lot.

Johnson County Med-Act transported two men from the scene to area hospitals.

A man in his mid-30's was reportedly stabbed multiple times. He was transported to Overland Park Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The second victim, only identified as a man in his mid-20's, was transported with a wrist laceration. His injuries were described as non-life threatening.

Multiple radio broadcasts describe the suspect as a white male in his mid-50's. He was last seen wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans. Witnesses told officers that he was last seen running north from the parking lot. Officers know the suspect's name, which Operation 100 News is not releasing at this time.

Police say they are investigating the possibility that there may have been more than one suspect.

No other information was immediately available.

Another stabbing was reported in Olathe shortly after 4 a.m..
