5 People Stabbed During Adams Morgan NYE Bar Fight

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Five people were stabbed in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of D.C. overnight, and police are investigating the attacks.

Four of the stabbings occurred inside District Nightclub on the 2400 block of 18th Street, and one happened right outside the bar.

Investigators say it appears the assaults may have occurred as a result of a large fight that had erupted on the second floor of the establishment as people rang in the New Year there.

All the victims, four men and one woman, are still in the hospital but none have life threatening injuries.

Police do not yet have any information about possible suspects. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police Department at 202-727-9099.
