Stabbing At B.I.G. Release Party

Three people were stabbed at a New York City nightclub December 21st during a record release party for the late Notorious B.I.G.’s album Duets.

Police were dispatched to the 2,888-capacity Exit Nightclub at around 3:10 a.m. after receiving an emergency call reporting a stabbing. Upon arrival, officers discovered two men who had been slashed in the face and one who had been stabbed in the stomach. All three were hospitalized.

At about the same time, patrol officers were investigating a shooting at a parking garage near the club. Three men were shot and said to be in stable condition.

No arrests were made and investigators are trying to determine if the two incidents were related.
