I was walking with my mother down 14th street towards Spring Rd. in Columbia Heights, and saw an intense fight across the street in front of La Cabana. It looked like two guys were fighting two other guys, throwing chairs and tables at each other, and then the fight escalated to a man pulling out long sticks/sharp objects from his truck bed and ended up stabbing one of the men.
Cops shortly arrived.
I grabbed my mom and ran out, not sure if others would come and the fight further escalate.
Does anyone have the back story on what happened? Is the guy okay? I just hope no one else got hurt and that the families and people around are okay.
Most definitely the scariest sight I have seen in DC.
According to MPD text alerts it was a double stabbing and it sounds like both victims will live. Hot weather, alcohol, and that block used to be known for a lot of latina prostitution, but not sure if that's still the case.

Correction: latest word from MPD & DCFD on twitter is that there were 3 stabbed, and that one may not make it/has life-threatening injuries.
