A 22-year-old USC student died of stabbing wounds in the hospital this morning after a fight a few blocks north of campus. The student and two others were walking near 28th Street and Orchard Avenue when another man approached and began an argument with him for unknown reasons. The argument escalated resulting in the stabbing (Update: The student has been identified, read on here.)

A West Hollywood resident was fatally stabbed after a fight inside Barney's Beanery spilled out into the parking lot. He was taken to the hospital early this morning where he died.

In both cases, the suspects are still at-large.
