Michigan Easter egg hunt turns violent when man stabbed over 'placement' of eggs: Sheriff

An Easter egg hunt at a Michigan elementary school went horribly wrong when a fight over the placement of the eggs led to a stabbing, authorities said.

Deputies with the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office were called Saturday morning to Valley View Elementary school in Battle Creek amid reports of a violent attack, the sheriff's office said.

They arrived and found a 36-year-old man wielding a knife, authorities said. Investigators said a male and his "partner" female got into an argument over the placement of the eggs.
