In the early hours of Sunday outside of Mekka Nightclub in Miami's 24-hour downtown entertainment district, a confrontation involving two different groups of friends ended up with one man stabbing another.
The victim, 31 year-old Marlon Sanchez, is listed in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, and police are still trying to identify the attacker according to WSVN.
After both men involved were partying inside the club, an argument started on the sidewalk. At one point a black BMW, heading against traffic on the one-way NE Second Avenue, jumped the curb and parked on the sidewalk. The driver of the vehicle popped the car's truck, and then the aggressor grabbed a "bladed object."
