SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Police say a bouncer who was stabbed a week ago at a Scottsdale nightclub has died.
Scottsdale police said Tyrice Thompson died Saturday morning from the stab wounds.
According to investigators, the 27-year-old Thompson of Laveen was stabbed five times in the back, hip, and arm after an altercation inside the club early morning on Jan. 27.
Police later arrested 26-year-old Ian MacDonald of Tempe in connection with the stabbing. Investigators say he admitted that he was involved in the fight but denied stabbing Thompson.
It was unclear if MacDonald had an attorney.
