1 Dead After Stabbing At Baltimore Nightclub

BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — Police say four men were stabbed, one fatally, at a Baltimore nightclub.

Baltimore City Police were called to the Bourbon Street Live club on Guilford Avenue around 1 a.m. Saturday.

A police department spokesman says one of the victims, a 24-year-old man, died of his injuries. He has been identified as Charles Johnson.  The three other men who were injured are expected to survive.

David Adams, one of the nightclub’s managers, said that the violence erupted in a ballroom where a ladies night event was happening, but he did not elaborate on what happened. He says the club will no longer hold ladies’ night events. 

City Councilman William Cole says he’s frustrated by outbreaks of violence at downtown clubs, which he attributes to “stupid fighting between individuals.” He says he’s not sure what the police department can do to prevent it.
