|Nicki Minaj's Tour Manager (De’Von Pickett) Was Stabbed|
To Death In A Fight At Che Bar & Grill in Philadelphia
De’Von Pickett, 29, who worked as the rapper’s road and tour manager, and another member of Minaj’s team were stabbed during an altercation in a bar.
“We believe that both of the victims, as well as the perpetrator, were all inside of this bar and that’s when an argument started,” Chief Inspector Scott Small told the station.
Some witnesses told the altercation may have had to do with a recently fired employee, something which has yet to be confirmed.
The argument spread outside the bar where one of the men pulled out a knife, police said.
Someone stabbed both Pickett and Reed several times.
Pickett suffered stab wounds in the torso while Reed suffered stab wounds to his left arm and left side.
A private car rushed both men to Albert Einstein Medical Center. Pickett died from his injuries at 2:45 a.m.
Reed remained in fair condition late Wednesday.
Police later returned to the 6300 block of Stenton Avenue where they found personal items, a cellphone and blood on the sidewalk outside the bar.
A Philadelphia Police crime camera and business surveillance cameras possibly captured at least part of the incident, said investigators.
Police said the suspect was last seen driving off in a gray Buick LeSabre.
He is described as a 30-year-old man standing 5-foot, 8-inches tall and weighing 160 pounds with a full beard. He was last seen wearing a black and gray jacket.
