PHILADELPHIA (CBSNewYork/AP) – A Philadelphia man has been arrested in the stabbings of two members of rapper Nicki Minaj’s tour, one of whom died.
Authorities say 31-year-old Pierce Boykin was arrested Monday on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and related offenses.
It wasn’t immediately clear if investigators were looking for other suspects.
The double stabbing on Wednesday left 29-year-old Devon Pickett dead and a second member of Minaj’s tour severely wounded. The 27-year-old man remains in critical condition.
Police say the stabbing occurred outside a bar after the victims argued with a man inside.
According to Minaj, the crew members had arrived in Philadelphia only two days earlier to rehearse for a tour.
Boykin or an attorney for him could not be reached Tuesday to comment on the charges.
