Two Members of Nicki Minaj's Team Stabbed Outside Philly Bar; One Dead, One Injured

The victims in an early morning bar stabbing in West Mount Airy have been identified as members of rapper Nicki Minaj's tour team. The incident happened after 2:00 a.m. Wednesday at the Che Bar & Grill on the 6300 block of Stenton Avenue near Johnson Street in Philadelphia. An argument inside the bar made its way outside to the street where 27-year-old Eric Parker and 29-year-old De'Von "Day Day" Pickett were stabbed by a third man.

The two victims were rushed to Einstein Medical Center by witnesses where hospital officials notified police. Pickett died from his wounds and Parker remains in critical condition but it expected to survive. Police went back to the scene and found a cellphone, a hat, broken glasses, and blood on the sidewalk. The suspect is described as a man in his 30's, 5'8" and 160 pounds, a light complexion, thin build with a full beard, wearing a gray and black jacket, and fled the scene in a gray Buick LeSabre.

The two men were in Philadelphia rehearsing for Minaj's upcoming "The Pinkprint Tour" with Philadelphia-native and rumored boyfriend Meek Mill. They have been alternately identified as her tour manager/roadie. Police are checking surveillance footage of the area and interviewing witnesses. There is a $20,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
