Atlanta police are investigating whether the 19-year-old man accused of stabbing five people at a New Year's Eve party in the Atlanta neighborhood of Reynoldstown may have been the target of an anti-gay slur during a confrontation at the late-night celebration.
The suspect is identified by Atlanta police as Luke O'Donovan. The stabbing occurred sometime after 3 a.m. on New Year's Day at 239 Gibson St., Atlanta Police Department Spokesperson Carlos Campos told GA Voice today.
In total, six were injured, including O'Donovan. Several of the victims were transported to local hospitals, Campos added.
