Update (09OCT2015): A&P Liqours security video of stabbing released
Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, the famous airman who took down the gunman on a train headed for Paris, was stabbed early this morning.
He was stabbed four times in the chest while standing on a Sacramento, CA street corner at about 12:45 AM.
Sacramento Deputy Police Chief Ken Bernard said the young airman was with four of his friends, one male and three females. According to Bernard, Stone and his friends got into a dispute with another group of people and it resulted in Stone being stabbed.
Early police reports made it clear that this was not an act of terrorism or a hate crime and alcohol was involved.
According to the Daily Mail, Spencer and his friends had just left Badlands, a popular gay bar in the area.
Stone was taken to the UC Davis Medical center where he was listed as in serious condition at 10:30 AM
The altercation was apparently caught on surveillance cameras at A&P Liquor on 21st street. According to the Air Force Times, the video does not clearly show the face of the suspects.
The Sacramento Police held a press conference at 11:00 a.m. to update the public on the incident and the suspects at large. The department stated that the suspects were two to three Asian males. They fled the scenes in a 2009-2012 dark colored Toyota Camry.
Police Officers at the scene told ABC10 that Stone’s condition was critical, but he is expected to survive.
