Following an early New Year’s Day stabbing at Love nightclub in Northeast, District police ordered that the space be shut down for 96 hours, the Washington Post reports. At around 1:30 a.m., a man in his early 20s was stabbed; he suffered serious injuries that were not life-threating.
This was the third violent incident inside the club in a week, police said. “Whenever there is a weapon inside of a club I’m going to do an emergency closing,” District Police Chief Cathy Lanier told the Post. While Love is closed, police will examine the violent incidents and review the club’s security.
