Comic-Con 2010: A stabbing at the San Diego Convention Center

By Jen Chaney
Comic-Con

A stabbing occurred today at Comic-Con in Hall H, the largest auditorium in the San Diego Convention Center.

KTLA got confirmation from San Diego police that there were two victims. Here in the Hall, there was a commotion in the back of the room, and someone yelled out that medical attention was needed. The sessions were put on hold for an hour while police and medics responded to the scene.

Fellow Comic-Con attendees, as well as Twitterers inside the Hall, reported that the stabbing was the result of an argument over a seat. At least one person was reportedly removed on a stretcher. I'll share more information as I learn it.

Actually, the suspect allegedly stabbed the victim in the eye with a pen.

The KTLA report vastly underrated the story.

I expect to see cell phone footage by tomorrow. There is already cell phone footage of the suspect doing the perp walk outisde the convention center.

After checking out the Comic-Con Hotties link, I can only say: Breasts are wonderful things and proof God wants us to be happy.

Gah, did the Post entertainment "journalist" who wrote this entry bother to call San Diego Police before filing this story? And were their editors asleep? Get this off the home page ASAP.

Initial media reports were inaccurate.

I think they shut down one session -- that one -- not "sessions."
