A hand wound sustained by a Minneapolis teen when he allegedly stabbed three people at a Minneapolis light-rail station on Friday led police to arrest him, the Star Tribune reported.

Alexander Andre Lanier, 19, went to the hospital with a cut on his palm that appeared to be from sliding down the knife's handle onto the blade, causing police suspicion and leading to his arrest, Fox 9 reported.

The three victims of the stabbings were getting off the light rail at Lake Street at 10:30 p.m. on Friday where Lanier and another person were allegedly making gang signs, the Star Tribune reported.

A fight started and the victims were stabbed, Fox 9 reported.

Lanier was charged with three counts of felony assault and is being held in custody with $300,000 bail, the Star Tribune reported.
