One man was fatally stabbed and two others injured in a dispute outside a famed nightclub in midtown Manhattan early Saturday morning, police said.
Responding to a 4 a.m. call to 911, police found two men stabbed at West 46th Street and Eighth Avenue, near the China Club.
The men, both 23, were taken to St. Vincent's Hospital Manhattan, where one was pronounced dead and the other was listed in stable condition with stab wounds to the chest and hip.
Several minutes later, police found another man, 35, with a stab wound to the chest about two blocks away. He was taken to New York Downtown Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition.
An unidentified suspect fled the scene, police said.
The men's names had not been released and an investigation was ongoing.
