Not Good Timing: Stabbing at Florida Memorial University Frat Party
Details are still sparse; neither school administrators nor Miami Gardens cops responded to Juice's inquiries. What's known so far, though, is that a fight broke out during a fraternity-hosted party at FMU's gym -- and at least one student was cut with a knife. "There were about eight fights on campus that night," says Emory Mitchell, the suspended student at the center of an October fracas that included a security guard pulling his weapon on unarmed students. "A friend of mine was stabbed, and another student was nicked."
Mitchell and other students could identify the victim only by his first name: Evell. He's the student who kicks open in the door in this now-infamous video. Mitchell says he's recovering and "doing fine." An FMU spokesperson told Local 10 WPLG: "Two males who do not attend Florida Memorial allegedly initiated an argument and confronted two male students who attend the University."
Let's hope, for FMU's sake, that nobody pressed "record" on their iPhone this time.
