BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — A 26 year old man was stabbed to death last night at a nightclub located on Greenwell Springs in Baton Rouge.
The Baton Rouge police department reports that the incident occurred shortly before 2:00 a.m. Officers were called to The Latin Club relative to a stabbing. When they arrived they found Juan Lopez, 26, of Baton Rouge suffering from multiple stab wounds to his chest.
Witnesses say that Lopez was stabbed by another Hispanic male during an altercation that happened outside of the club.
The suspect fled the scene before officers arrived. Investigators are working to identify a suspect, as well as the motive as it relates to the argument.
"We are still trying to nail down what the altercation was about, which I mean this happened in the parking lot of a night club," said Cpl. Tommy Stubbs with the Baton Rouge Police Department. "I'm sure a lot of people were present. Somebody knows exactly what happened. They know who this person is, and we could really use your help. "
