At least seven people were hospitalized after a violent brawl broke out between a white supremacist group and counter-protesters, yesterday.

Two of injured had critical stab wounds, as the situation is dubbed ‘very chaotic’.

"It was a very chaotic situation and it’s unclear if all seven of the people transported had stab wounds, but there were seven (taken to hospitals)," Sacramento Fire Department spokesman Chris Harvey said.

The Traditionalist Worker Party, or TWP, whose leader describes it as a "white nationalist" group, had a permit for a noon rally near the state Capitol, said Officer George Granada, California Highway Patrol public information officer with the Capitol Protection Division. Another group showed up "to stop them from carrying on their permit," he said.

"They (counter-protesters) showed up ahead of time in a large group, probably 300 or more," Granada said. "They were positioned around the Capitol to stop them (TWP demonstrators) from carrying on their permit."
