One person is in critical condition and three others are stable after police said they were stabbed outside the LaFontaine Blue catering hall in Lanham, Md. Sunday evening.
One employee told NBC4 a group rented the venue for a crab feast. He said everything was going well with people eating and dancing inside, and then he got news something went wrong as the event was ending.
A Prince George's County Police spokesman said about 12 people were involved in a fight outside the venue before the stabbing.
Witnesses told police several suspects were seen jumping into a black SUV heading east on Route 450 toward the Beltway. There's no further information on the suspects or the victims at this time.
