    A 27-year-old man died Saturday evening from injuries suffered in a bar fight in Virginia overnight.

    Velocity Five sports bar in Centreville had been closed for about 40 minutes when staff heard a fight break out in the parking lot, according to a post on the bar's Facebook page.

    One staff member called the police.

    Fairfax County Police officers responding to a report of a possible stabbing in the 5800 block of Trinity Parkway in Centreville about 2:15 a.m. found Harold Garnett suffering from upper body wounds outside Velocity 5.

    Officers searched the area, and a K-9 unit found 38-year-old Vidal Flores Cuchillas in nearby bushes.

    Garnett was taken to a hospital in critical condition but was expected to survive, police said. But his condition got worse throughout the day.

    Velocity Bar said Garnett was a regular guest and friend.

    Cuchillas is being held without bond.
