BROKEN HOPE Show In El Paso Results In Fan Throat Slashing, Three Stabbings

Today in the WTF dept…

A fan’s throat was slashed by a box cutter during a Broken Hope show in El Paso, Texas at Tricky Falls on October 22nd. There are no additional details to provide at the moment, but the victim appears to have survived. Other reports also confirm that there were three stabbings as well.

This is pretty messed up. Something tells me it’s far from over and there may very well be lawsuits on the way. I wouldn’t hold the band at fault, but perhaps security at the venue could have been better. I remember going to many Metal shows where searching/pat-downs were involved. It’s unclear what types of security measures were in place, so we will just have to see what happens here.

Our thoughts go out to the victims…

UPDATE: Suspect Arrested!
