BROOKLINE— Brookline Police are reporting that the Ford Focus involved in the shooting and stabbing incidences at St. Paul Street and Harvard Street was found Wednesday night abandoned in Boston.

The two men connected with the events are still at large.

Police Chief Daniel C. O’Leary said the suspects are “known” to police.

The incidences started at 198 St. Paul Street, where one of the victims was found in the foyer of the apartment with multiple shooting and stab wounds, O’Leary said.

After officers arrived at the scene, multiple calls came in reporting that two bodies were on the street in front of Brookline Spa at 75 Harvard Street. The victims were found stabbed and at least one was shot. All three victims were taken to local hospitals where they remain in stable condition.

Officers initially responded to the incident after many calls were placed to the police department about struggles in the apartment.

The car, which was rented in New Jersey with New York license plates, was seen leaving two of the victims in the street in Brookline. It is unclear whether the victims jumped out of the car or were thrown out.

One of the suspects fled in the Focus while one is believed to have taken off on foot, according to police.

On Wednesday, Amos A. Lawrence School, Pierce Elementary School and St. Mary of the Assumption School were on lockdown for the remainder of the school day, though students were dismissed regularly. The lockdown was done as a precautionary measure, even though police officers were present on all three campuses.
