EKU student stabbed at campus party

An Eastern Kentucky University student was stabbed in the arm during an on-campus party early Sunday morning.

Dominique L. Johnson, 19, from Louisville, was at a party sponsored by the campus chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc., in the Weaver Building gymnasium when he was stabbed in his upper left triceps during an argument, according to a news release from the university.

Friends took Johnson to Pattie A. Clay Hospital in Richmond, where he was treated and released, EKU spokesman Marc Whitt said.

The hospital notified EKU police at 2:49 a.m. Sunday. No one has been arrested.

On- and off-campus advisers, chaperones and EKU police officers were present at the party, Whitt said.

The university will begin an internal review of the incident by reviewing security measures for such events.
