One Injured In Stabbing On U Of L Campus

LOUISVILLE, KY -- An early morning stabbing on the University of Louisville campus resulted in a man being taken to University Hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, reports The Louisville Courier-Journal in its Saturday edition.

According to a campuswide e-mail sent to students, faculty and staff from U of L President James Ramsey and Provost Shirley Willihnganz, the incident occurred around 5 a.m. yesterday on the west side of campus and involved an altercation between an African-American student and four white men, including two students.

The African-American student had just dropped off a female African-American friend at one of the residence halls.

The exchange escalated into a fight between the African-American student and one of the nonstudents. The female student returned with a friend and allegedly stabbed the nonstudent several times with what was described as a pocketknife, according to university officials.

Kenny Brown, assistant chief with the U of L Police Department, said there are conflicting reports on whether racial remarks were made.

He said police have interviewed several people and the investigation is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the university police at 852-6111. reports The Louisville Courier-Journal.
