According to Metro police, Mosley stabbed three people outside of the bar around 3 a.m. Saturday. Two of the victims, Clayton Beathard, 22, and Paul Trapeni, III, 21, did not survive their injuries. A third man, A.J. Bethurum, suffered wounds to his arm and eye, but was expected to recover.

Police explained the incident began when Mosley made “an unwanted advancement” toward a female friend of the victims inside the bar. The three victims reportedly intervened to help the woman and were later stabbed outside.
