Three teenagers were stabbed during a fight outside a school in Brooklyn Tuesday afternoon.

The ordeal happened about 2:10 p.m. in front of Lincoln High School, at the intersection of Ocean Parkway and Neptune Avenue in the West Brighton section.

Officials said the victims are between 16 and 18 years old. One was stabbed in the buttocks, another in the shoulder and the third in the abdomen.

All three were taken to Lutheran Hospital, where they are listed in stable condition and are expected to survive.

Police said the three victims are students a James Madison High School, which is about 2 1/2 miles away.

Police say three males were taken into custody, and charges are pending.

A spokesperson from the NYC Department of Education said two schools were placed on lockdown as a result of the incident.

"Out of an abundance of caution, Lincoln High School, William E. Grady High School and I.S. 303 in Brooklyn were temporarily placed on a shelter-in this afternoon due to the NYPD's response and investigation into a serious off-site incident that took place in the area," said the spokesperson in a statement.
