After leaving a fellow with injuries so severe he had to be taken to a nearby hospital, three teenage boys in Long Beach are being charged with attempted murder.

The incident happened yesterday afternoon near Wilson High School, where the three suspects are students. Police arrived at the scene, near 10th Street and Ximeno Avenue, and found the victim lying in the street with "serious injuries," reports City News Service. They later arrested the two 16 and one 15-year old boys, as well as a 15-year-old girl accused of tampering with evidence.

The boys apparently exchanged words right before the assault, although it's not clear what the disagreement was about. Officials believe that more students may have been involved.
