Two people were stabbed during an altercation at Pride Fort Lauderdale Sunday about 6:30 p.m., according to the Fort Lauderdale Police Department.

The two individuals are expected to survive, but a “trauma alert” was issued for one victim. The other victim suffered superficial injuries.

Two people have been detained, but no other information is available at this time.

“We believe this was an isolated incident, which happened during an altercation near the main stage,” said Casey Liening, Public Information Specialist for the FLPD. “This was not an attack/active killer situation.”

Pride Fort Lauderdale took place on Fort Lauderdale’s beach. The main stage is located at 700 Seabreeze Blvd.

"There is no indication this was a premeditated act of terrorism designed to cause harm or fear to the South Florida LGBTQ community. All indications are that this was a dispute between disagreeing parties," read a statement from Pride Fort Lauderdale. "At Pride Fort Lauderdale, we make the security and safety of our guests a priority. We are able to share that at all our events we require a police presence to protect our staff, volunteers, sponsors and guests."
