'Notorious' Violence: Stabbings in Brooklyn Saturday

UPDATED: Four young men were stabbed at a Notorious afterparty 3:25 a.m. Saturday morning at the Djumbala nightclub at 1370 Ralph Avenue.

According to Newsday, one of them had numerous stab wounds, and the other three each had been stabbed once.

Notorious, the movie on the life and times of Brooklyn rapper Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G., opened Friday at theaters nationwide. In Greensboro, a shooter opened fire on a fellow moviegoer in a packed theater lobby at the Friday opening.

According to Greensboro Telegram, "In a strange twist, Ryan Seals of the News & Record also reported that Jamal Woolard, the actor who played Biggie Smalls in the 'Notorious' movie, was actually at the Four Seasons theater in Greensboro during the shooting."

Wallace was fatally shot in 1997 at the age of 24. On Thursday, Brooklyn BP Marty Markowitz presented proclamations to the family of Wallace, at a special screening at BAM. Photos here.
