Teenager knifed in gangsta brawl
Mar 28 2006
A TEENAGER was knifed in the back at a rapper's after-show party in Liverpool.
The 17-year-old local youth is seriously ill after the attack at the Bar and Grill in Bold Street during a party for gangsta rapper Lethal Bizzle.
Another 17-year-old and an 18-year-old, both from Liverpool, were also stabbed when locals clashed with the performer's entourage at 12.45am on Monday.
Lethal Bizzle, who had a top-10 hit in 2002 as a member of More Fire Crew, performed at the Barfly club in Seel Street on Sunday before heading to a private party.
Police believe the two groups began arguing inside before the row spilled out onto the street.
Six Merseyside youths and three youths and a girl from London are still being questioned on suspicion of assault and public disorder.
Police sealed off much of Bold Street and are still searching for the weapon, believed to be a knife.
A spokeswoman said: "We are examining CCTV footage and would appeal for any witnesses to come forward."
A spokeswoman for the Bar and Grill said the fight escalated after door staff removed a group of people scuffling inside the venue.
