#Rp @myfabolouslife – these guys flew into Philly for my tour rehearsals 2 days ago and were both stabbed last night. #RIPDAYDAY condolences to your family. Unbelievable. Eric (on the right) is recovering. Another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy. So sad.
Minaj posted a link to a TV report on the bar stabbings.
Police say a man started arguing with the victims inside the bar at about 2 a.m. and pulled a knife once they got outside.
Minaj says the stabbings are “another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy.”
Police are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
