PHILADELPHIA (CBSNewYork/AP)Singer Nicki Minaj says two members of her tour have been stabbed in Philadelphia, one of them fatally.

The Jamaica, Queens, native wrote Wednesday on Twitter that the two had flown into Philadelphia for rehearsals two days ago.

Two men, ages 29 and 26, were stabbed early Wednesday outside a bar, police said.

The 29-year-old was killed and the younger man was critically wounded, cops said.

Minaj posted a link to a TV report on the bar stabbings.

A man started arguing with the victims inside the bar at about 2 a.m. and pulled a knife once they got outside, police said. CBSPhilly.com reported the argument at the Che Bar and Grill involved a recently fired employee.

Minaj said the stabbings are “another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy.”

Police are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.
