A stabbing at a downtown Salt Lake City hip-hop concert led to a near riot as a small army of police responded to keep order early Friday morning.
Salt Lake City police Detective Veronica Montoya said one 32-year-old man was in the hospital, two other men in jail after allegedly battling with police, and a knife-wielding suspect remained at large.
Public safety dispatchers received a 911 call at 11:46 p.m. Thursday from the Infinity Event Center, 56 E. 600 South, reporting what turned out to be a stabbing.
As police and paramedics arrived, however, the scene got ugly. Not only were concert-goers uncooperative with dozens of arriving officers, some were hostile when told the venue was overcrowded and they would have to leave.
