It is being reported that at last night's CORROSION OF CONFORMITY show at The Masquerade in Tampa, FL four people were stabbed with one being fatally wounded. The band has released the following statement on their web site:

"We are stunned deeply saddened by the brutal stabbings of three people at the Tampa show last night. We don't have much information at this time. Unofficially we have heard that one victim didn't make it. In twenty plus years of gigging we've never seen anything like this. It's sad that people can't come together for a good time listening to music without something tragic happening. We feel for the families of those attacked and wish success to Tampa law enforcement in their quest to solve this pointless crime. Take care of each other and go in peace.

Anyone who has any information or saw anything should contact the Tampa Police at 813-276-3200."

Ben Montgomery of The Tampa Tribune has issued the following report on the incident:

"Four people were stabbed - one of them fatally -during a brawl Thursday night inside The Masquerade, a night club on Seventh Avenue, police said.

Tampa Police Spokesman Joe Durkin said a "shoving match" started between two women on the club's dance floor just before 11:30 p.m. The tussle escalated when others tried to break the women apart. That's when a bald man with a knife began stabbing patrons, Durkin said.

Then people fled the club, Durkin said, the suspect included.

Of the surviving victims, one was in critical condition at the hospital this morning, one was in fair condition and one was treated for minor injuries and released, according to police.

Durkin would not release the name of the deceased until next of kin is notified.

Police detained at least three people and hauled them from the club in handcuffs this morning, but Durkin said police were still looking for the suspect. He's described as white, about 28 to 30 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 pounds, with tattoos."
