Six people were arrested and questioned in Halifax early Saturday after an American sailor was stabbed to death outside a downtown night spot.
No one has been charged in the slaying. Police were called around 4 a.m. after a fight that broke out inside a club moved out onto the street. About 20 people were involved in the fight, police said.
The 28-year-old sailor, who has not been identified, was found stabbed on the street.
"He was transported to hospital where he was pronounced dead," police spokeswoman Theresa Brien told CTV News.
An autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.
"There was another American sailor that received a minor injury to his foot," Brien said.
HALIFAX -- Fallout from the murder of an American sailor outside a Halifax nightclub -- leaving behind his eight-months pregnant fiance -- has created a public debate in the city over whether its bars should be closed earlier.
Hull technician 1st Class Damon Crooks, 28, of West Palm Beach, Fla., was stabbed early Saturday outside a popular downtown club after a fight that began inside spilled onto the street.
Cory Wright, 23, of Halifax has been charged with first-degree murder. Wright made a brief court appearance Monday and was remanded into custody until election and plea on Nov. 21. Two other local men face less severe charges in connection with the stabbing.
