Three Lawrence men were formally charged Monday in the stabbings of three teens that police said stemmed from a fight between two local gangs.

Jason Robert Freeman and Skyland John Love, both 18, each were charged with three counts of attempted second-degree murder.

Richard Francis Jarrett Jr., 23, was charged with aggravated battery and conspiracy to commit aggravated battery.

Douglas County District Judge Paula Martin set bond for Freeman at $150,000, bond for Love at $100,000 and bond for Jarrett at $10,000.

A preliminary hearing for all three was set for 1:45 p.m. Sept. 16.

They were charged following an incident about 1 a.m. Sunday in the 200 block of Glenview Drive in which three teens were hospitalized with stab wounds.

One of the three victims, age 16, was listed in good condition at a Kansas City-area hospital. Another, age 16, was listed in stable condition at Lawrence Memorial Hospital, and the third, age 17, was dismissed from LMH, a nursing supervisor said.

Four teens -- two boys and two girls -- also were detained and sent to the Northeast Kansas Juvenile Detention Center. No formal charges had been filed against them as of Monday.

A detention hearing for the juveniles was scheduled for this afternoon.
