One of two men who were stabbed at a Long Beach gay bar early Saturday morning has died from his injuries.
Long Beach police say Christopher Finley, a 28-year-old resident of Long Beach, died about eight hours after the attack.
Finley and another unidentified man were stabbed in the “upper torso” around 1:50 a.m. at Mineshaft on the 1700 block of East Broadway.
Both men were transported to the hospital for injuries that police believed at the time were not life-threatening. Despite the initial report, Finley died around 10:50 a.m. Saturday, the Police Department said.
Investigators believe the two men got into a verbal argument with a third unidentified man. The altercation got physical and the suspect allegedly pulled out a knife and stabbed both men before fleeing the area.
Police have not yet released any information about the suspect’s description, but have said that the investigation is ongoing.
