When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered one male victim near the perimeter fence between Cesar Chavez High School and the park.

The video also shows the white Tahoe pulling into the lot. Two Hispanic or black females can be seen exiting, then joining in the chase. One of the females is captured on the video surveillance.
The victim flees out the back and the suspects are seen getting back into the Tahoe and driving off. The third female is not pictured.

"At Cesar Chavez High School, tensions are high,” says Crump.
Following the incident, the Phoenix Union school district released the following statement:
"Two of our Cesar Chavez students were injured in a stabbing at Cesar Chavez Park at approximately 2 p.m. They were transported to the hospital. Police are looking for two suspects (African American male and female) driving a 2015 or 2016 white Chevy Tahoe. The school went into a Shelter in Place as a precaution, while police responded and secured the area. The police advised us at 2:45 p.m. that it was safe to release students from school. We advised our students who walk home to avoid Cesar Chavez Park. Our thoughts and prayers are with the two students injured in this incident."
Police say they are looking at several investigative leads, and hope the newly released photos will help them find the suspects.
“We don’t have a motive," says Crump. "Those who are involved in this are lacking cooperation with our investigators.”
