4 Knifed at “Notorious” After-Party

One man is in critical condition after he and three others were stabbed at a party for the release of the Biggie Smalls biopic “Notorious” over the weekend.

Antwione Jones, 21, was in critical condition, hooked up to a respirator at Brookdale University Hospital on Saturday, the Daily News reported.

Four men were stabbed after a fight broke out at the Djumbala club in Canarsie, Brooklyn, which is roughly three miles from the rapper's former home. Jones and several friends caught a late showing of "Notorious" before later stopping by the Ralph Ave. club.

Party promoters advertised the event as the "official" film after-party but movie distributor Fox Searchlight said the party had no official connection to the pic.

"Antwione was just getting ready to leave with his fiancée before it got too crowded when he turned around and heard fighting," Jones' aunt, who only gave her first name, Brenda, told The News.

In Greensboro, North Carolina, showings of "Notorious" were suspended on Friday after a man was shot during an argument. There was no connection between the shooting and the film, cops said.
