Lexington police were looking for four people Tuesday after two men checked into Lexington's Baptist Health hospital's emergency room saying they had been stabbed at Shillito Park.

Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said the men's injuries did not appear to be life threatening.

Roberts said the stabbings, which occurred after 11 a.m., followed an argument after a basketball game.

Hospital officials called police after the men arrived at the hospital, she said.

Here are the descriptions of the four men:

■ A biracial man about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-7 who was wearing glasses, no shirt and green shorts with a blue stripe.

■ A black man about 5-foot-8 who was wearing a black shirt (with an animal on it), black mesh shorts with a gray stripe.

■ A black man who is about 5-foot-8 who was wearing a red football jersey and white "tap out" shorts.

■ A black man who is about 6-foot-6. The man, who was shirtless and wearing black shorts, has two silver tooth caps (one on front teeth, one on canine tooth)
