Man In Critical Condition After Station Square Stabbing

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A man is recovering in the hospital after being stabbed in Station Square.

Around 2:26 a.m., Pittsburgh Police got a call for a man bleeding heavily near one of the toll gates in the parking lot, near the nightclub "Whim."

Once on scene, police found a man with what appeared to be stab wounds to the upper right chest.

KDKA's Kimberly Gill Reports:

He was in respiratory distress and had blood coming out of his mouth.

According to police, it all started when two young men started calling each other names and making threats.

When police arrived, several young people pleaded for help, nearby their friend William Murphy was holding a bloody T-shirt against his chest and bleeding profusely.

Officers then asked who had stabbed him and Murphy pointed to 20-year-old Brion Harrison, saying, "he did."

Murphy was later taken to UPMC Mercy Hospital in critical condition. He is expected to survive his injuries.

Officers also arrested Harrison.

As for what caused the bloody confrontation: court documents say Harrison and the group exchanged words over how Harrison was dressed -- a physical confrontation ensued and Harrison pulled out 7-inch gold knife, stabbing Murphy.

Harrison also has a history of violent crimes. He is currently in the Allegheny County Jail, facing charges of aggravated assault and attempted criminal homicide.
