On Tuesday in El Paso, Texas at a Broken Hope show, three people were sent to the hospital with injuries sustained by an attacker with a boxcutter. One witness claims the attack took place near the front of the stage, with at least one victim being slashed on the throat. The witness claims that police have apprehended a suspect, but this has not yet been substantiated by law enforcement officials. The venue was Tricky Falls in downtown El Paso, and the stabbing took place during Deicide’s set when two people began fighting each other in the mosh pit.
