Two Men Stabbed During Waka Flocka Flame Concert at the Observatory
Oliver Scherillo / OC Weekly
Two men were stabbed while in a mosh pit during the Waka Flocka Flame concert at the Observatory on Sunday. The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m.
A 19-year-old was treated at the scene for a stab wound to his shoulder.
A second victim, identified as a 22-year-old man, suffered a 31/2 inch stab wound to his back. He was transported by ambulance to a hospital and is said to be listed in stable condition.
Police believe the victims were randomly targeted since they did not know each other.
The motive for the attack remains unclear. No arrests have been made.
Video of one of the victims being wheeled into UCI Medical can be seen here. It's been a while since anything even resembling a stabbing has occurred at the Observatory. Though this tweet from a Flocka fan after the show seems a little poorly timed, considering the circumstances.
Um...maybe there should've been?
