A man was stabbed late last night inside Layla Lounge (501 Morse Street) in the Florida Avenue Market area. Layla Lounge is a popular nightclub, and not typically a problem spot. The stabbing took place a little after 1am. A man in his early twenties was reportedly stabbed in the chest and abdomen following a fight on the club's second flood and later died of his injuries. Layla Lounge had musical performances scheduled as part of the club's Levels Wednesdays series. Judging from that top video below, and one on Periscope there was quite a line out front earlier.
