Two stabbed during parking lot fight in Fort Worth Stockyards

Fight at Billy Bob's parking lot

Correction: The Fort Worth Police Department updated the final incident report to reflect the location as 130 Stockyards Blvd.

A fight in the parking lot led to a double stabbing Sunday morning in the Fort Worth Stockyards. 

Authorities were called to the stabbing at 130 Stockyards Blvd. just after 3 a.m.

The incident started as a large brawl and ended with two males stabbed. 

Both of the victims fled the scene in the same car, which was later located by one of the victim's brothers on Old Decatur Rd at Loop 820.

One victim was listed in serious condition with injuries to the lower torso. The second victim suffered non-life threatening injuries. Both victims were transported to a local hospital.

Initially, Fort Worth police spokesman Bradley Perez reported that northwest units were dispatched to Billy Bob's Texas nightclub, 2525 Rodeo Plaza, at 3:08 a.m. in response to a fight call and then received another call about a stabbing minutes later.

But further investigation showed that the stabbing occurred at 130 Stockyards Blvd., east of Billy Bob’s Texas, at approximately 3:10 a.m.

In an emailed statement, Pam Minick of Billy Bob's Texas stated that the security staff checked the honkytonk's property around the time of the incident to make sure it was clear.

"Billy Bob’s takes security very seriously -- we walk all of our employees to their cars after closing before 2 am -- and our security staff made a sweep of Billy Bob’s lot at 3 a.m. and again later, and saw no incidents or altercations on Billy Bob’s property," Minick wrote.
