According to ABC Action News, witnesses say the fight broke out at Masquerade just before midnight. Two women got into a shoving match while CORROSION OF CONFORMITY was onstage, and several people jumped in to break up the fight; among those was a man with a large knife.

"I see two guys; all of the sudden one went this way, one went that way. That's all we knew. I thought they got in a fight, and then somebody said somebody got stabbed," one witness told Action News.

In fact, four people had been stabbed. A man in his mid-30s was killed, and was a woman who may have been involved in the fight was critically injured. Another man was left in fair condition, while a fourth was treated at the scene.

Relatives of the victim were still being notified this morning, so none of the victims' identities had been released.

Two people were detained at the scene, but their possible involvement in the melee was not clear.

Police are still looking for the suspect, who was described as a skinny man in his 30s with a shaved head, a reddish-brown mustache goatee, and last seen wearing a white tank top.
