NORTON SHORES, Mich. — Police say a stabbing that apparently stemmed from a dispute between family members at a children’s bounce house facility in West Michigan left two adults injured.

The Muskegon Chronicle reports officers in Norton Shores responded Friday night to reports about a dispute at Kangaroo Palace involving three family members.

Police say the dispute took place both inside and outside the Muskegon-area facility. A 38-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman were stabbed.
