Four People Stabbed in Fight Over Oakland Pit Bull

Posted By on Mon, Mar 24, 2008 at 9:06 AM

Proving once again that some pit bull owners may be of greater concern to the community then the much maligned dog breed, an article in today's Oakland Tribune describes a fight over one of the dogs that resulted in multiple stabbings. Around 11 a.m. on Sunday, an unnamed father and two sons fought over a pit bull with a fourth man named Lamont Smith. Smith stabbed one of the sons, 22, in the stomach, and the father and 16-year-old son received cuts to their hands when they joined the fray.
Police said the fourth person, Lamont Smith, a 30-year-old self-described transient, stabbed the 22-year-old and later was cut himself. He fled the scene, police said, but was arrested about 2:30 p.m. at San Leandro Hospital, where he had gone to be treated for a knife wound.
When the police show up at the hospital where you are being treated for stab wounds, do yourself a favor, pick a slightly less shady word than "transient."-Andy Wright

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
