STABBING IN FED HILL: 'Why was a 17-year-old inside a bar? That still remains a mystery'

Baltimore police have arrested a 17-year-old suspect in connection to a triple stabbing at a Federal Hill pub this weekend

BALTIMORE (WBFF) -- Baltimore police have arrested a 17-year-old suspect in connection to a triple stabbing at a Federal Hill pub this weekend.

Baltimore police say a fight involving two groups of people took place inside of Bandito's Pub, on South Charles Street and Cross Street, early Saturday morning at 1:30 a.m.

"The main question I've been getting is, why was a 17-year-old inside a bar? That still remains a mystery," Det. Donny Moses said. "When the officers got there, they found four people suffering from stab wounds."

The brawl ended with three men sustaining "non-life-threatening" stab wound injuries and one of the men was hospitalized in serious condition. His condition was upgraded to critical Saturday night; however, on Sunday morning, police confirmed that the victim's condition is now serious but stable.

One of the victims was a bouncer at Bandito's, according to Moses.

Further investigation revealed that the suspect, identified as Shawn Guzman, accidentally cut himself during the altercation, becoming the fourth victim.

Guzman was arrested and charged as an adult with three counts of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated assault.

"It's surprising. You don't expect to have 17-year-olds in the bar, but I guess it does happen," said Mike Whyms, of Baltimore. "This incident doesn't define Federal Hill, at all, or Baltimore. Bad things happen every now and then, but it's still a good place."

Guzman's address is listed as Pontiac Avenue in Brooklyn, according to online court records. Police, however, said he is from Baltimore County, not the city.

Guzman remains in central booking at this time.
