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.

None that MPD is releasing at the moment. They have cameras and the investigation is ongoing. I'm sure more info will come out.

This is a conspiracy to gentrify union market and drive out all the local color and turn it into a giant yoga, latte, park where people can play with their labradoodles after leaving their jobs with benefits!

I want affordable housing for the poor on disability and I want at least 6 armed robberies every night to keep coco city true to its roots. DC was the murder capitol once and it will be once again.

I wouldn't mind a safe public park where I can do yoga after work, but mixing caffeine with exercise is not a very safe idea. NoMA has $50 million to make more green space. We should pass this idea along minus the coco city part.
