SACRAMENTO, Calif. -

The Latest on a clash between a right-wing protesters and counter protesters that left at least six people with stab wounds (all times local):

2:45 p.m.
    
Authorities say at least seven people were hospitalized with stab wounds after a clash between members of right-wing groups and "anti-fascists" outside the California state Capitol building in Sacramento.
    
California Highway Patrol Officer George Granada says about 30 members of the Traditionalist Worker Party gathered at the capitol for a rally when they were met by about 400 counter-protesters and a fight broke out around noon Sunday.
    
Granada says the capitol is still on lockdown three hours after the fight broke out but that things have calmed down and only about 70 "anti-fascists" remain in the area.

Matthew Heimbach, chairman of the Traditionalist Worker Party, tells the Los Angeles Times that his group and the Golden State Skinheads organized the Sunday rally.
    
Vice chairman Matt Parrott, who was not present at the Sacramento rally, says it was a peaceful march and blamed "leftist radicals" for instigating the violence. Heimbach says that in the clash, one of their marchers had been stabbed in an artery and six of the "anti-fascists" had also been stabbed.
    
A message left at a phone number for the Traditionalist Worker Party was not immediately returned to The Associated Press.
    
A post recently uploaded to site of the Traditionalist Youth Network says TWP members planned to march in Sacramento to protest against globalization and in defense of the right to free expression. They say they expected to be outnumbered 10-to-1 by counter-protestors.

Sacramento Fire Department spokesman Chris Harvey says emergency crews transported six people who were stabbed outside the California state Capitol building in Sacramento.
    
Harvey says a rally by KKK and other right-wing extremists groups turned violent Sunday when they were met by counterprotesters.
    
He says a large fight broke out after people carrying sticks rushed into the area where the rally was being held.
    
Harvey says California Highway Patrol officers managed to break up the large fight but that some members of both groups remain in the area.

1:05 p.m.
    
Five people have been stabbed outside the California state Capitol building in Sacramento.
    
Officer Matt McPhail with the Sacramento Police Department says none of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening.
    
The victims were all present while a protest took place, though McPhail said it was still unclear whether and how they were involved.
    
The Traditionalist Workers Party had scheduled and received a permit to protest at noon Sunday in front of the Capitol. McPhail says a group of counter-protesters showed up to demonstrate against them.
    
The Southern Poverty Law Center has described TWP as a group formed in 2015 as the political wing of the Traditionalist Youth Network, which aims to "indoctrinate high school and college students into white nationalism."
