BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Three people are stabbed in Mt. Vernon inside a popular nightclub.
Jessica Kartalija has details on the fight.
Police are still searching for a suspect.
A video posted on Gutter Magazine’s website shows the scene outside a popular Mt. Vernon nightclub early Sunday morning.
A police report obtained by WJZ says officers were called to Eden’s Lounge on West Eager Street for routine crowd control. When a man stumbled out of the club, his back was covered in blood. Officers say the victim looked confused and highly intoxicated. When the victim removed his shirt, he had five stab wounds to his upper back.
Two other men also ran out of the club, covered in blood. Both had stab wounds to their back and neck.
Eden’s Lounge tells WJZ: “We really don’t know what happened. We deeply regret that it occurred, and we regret that people were injured. This certainly doesn’t reflect Eden’s Lounge. It’s not typical of anything that goes on here.”
The nightclub is known to have a strong police presence, following the murder of Marine Tyrone Brown in June 2010.
Brown was leaving Eden’s Lounge when he was shot several times by Officer Gahiji Tshamba, who was sentenced in August to seven years for manslaughter and 10 years for a handgun violation.
All three victims tell police they didn’t see the person who stabbed them and don’t know what sparked the violence.
Police aren’t commenting on this case and have not reported any arrests or suspect description.
Eden’s Lounge is located in the heart of Mt. Vernon.
