One of the three Americans who fought off an August attack by an Islamic extremist on a Paris-bound train was stabbed in Sacramento Wednesday night.
Airman First Class Spencer Stone was listed in stable condition on Thursday, an Air Force spokesperson told CBS News Sacramento.
“A1C Spencer Stone has been transported to a local hospital, and is currently being treated for injury. The incident is currently under investigation by local law enforcement. He is currently in stable condition,” a statement from the U.S. Air Force reads, according to CBS News.
Initial reports listed Stone’s condition as “critical.”
According to CBS News, who first reported the story, Stone was stabbed repeatedly. The incident happened outside of a bar at 21st and K Streets, CBS News reports. Stone reportedly suffered a wound to the heart and his left lung.
Alek Skarlatos, one of Stone’s compaions who assisted him in taking down the terrorist, tweeted:
Everybody send prayers out to the stone family today

And Air Combat Command tweeted it’s well-wishes:
Stone was out with friends when he was stabbed multiple times in the torso around 12:45 a.m. near some popular bars in downtown Sacramento, police said.
It appeared that a “verbal argument” ended up on the street and led to a physical confrontation, a Sacramento Police Department spokeswoman told NBC News.
He was not targeted because of his heroics in France, the spokeswoman said. “It appears it was happenstance,” she added.
A man and a woman were questioned after the attack, NBC affiliate KCRA reported, adding they were not detained or taken into custody. Police have not released a description of the suspect, the station said.
