Rapper Fabolous is in mourning after a childhood friend and associate was fatally wounded on Friday. The Diamonds star’s pal Shemal MCKinney was spotted by police stumbling out of New York nightclub Duvet at 3:30am, bleeding from multiple stab wounds.
It is understood he was stabbed by three unidentified men while a fight broke out between two women. MCKinney, 25, later died at St Vincent’s hospital at 4:10 am. Police investigating the incident found a seven-inch folding knife covered in blood in a nearby dumpster, and are currently reviewing surveillance footage from the club to establish how the knife was smuggled into the club.
Rest in peace, Shemal. We didn’t know you, but we know what it’s like to lose a friend.
