The 22-year-old victim was attending the memorial of a friend with several other people at 24th and Harrison streets about 9:16 p.m. when a fight erupted, Shyy said.
During the fight, the victim was reportedly stabbed in the hand, neck and head, police said. His injuries were initially considered life threatening, but the victim was able to transport himself to the hospital and was lucid enough to give police a statement.
The suspect in the stabbing was described as a man in his 20s, wearing a baseball hat, black shirt and blue jeans, Shyy said. He remains at large.
