    Two people were hospitalized late Tuesday in critical condition following a stabbing in San Jose, police said.

    Police said officers at 6:12 p.m. were sent to the 2800 block of S. White Road for a report of a person stabbed.

    Responding officers found a man and woman suffering from at least one stab wound in front of a Carl's Jr. restaurant in the area. The victims were transported to a local hospital in critical condition.

    Sources told NBC Bay Area Tuesday night the woman succumbed to her injuries, but police Wednesday said the victims were still alive.

    Police said it appears the victims were attacked by several men who got away in a car. Investigators were still searching for the suspects late Tuesday.

    Officers during the response and investigation blocked off the area of Quimby and South White roads.

    Police said the stabbings could be gang related.

    Tuesday night's attack follows another deadly stabbing of a 24-year-old man on Christmas Day. 

    The victim in the Dec. 25 stabbing has been identified as Luis Marin, who police said was found with at least one stab wound in the 200 block of N. 26th Street. Marin was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

    Police have not made any arrests in the case.
