The “Anaconda” rapper also posted a photo of the two men on Instagram, captioned: “these guys flew into Philly for my tour rehearsals 2 days ago and were both stabbed last night. #RIPDAYDAY condolences to your family. Unbelievable. Eric (on the right) is recovering. Another senseless act of violence that took the life of a great guy. So sad.”

Members of law enforcement would not reveal the identities of the victims or offer any further details of the incident, according to Billboard. However, TMZ is reporting De’Von “Day Day” Pickett is the man who was killed, while the other man is said to be named Eric Parker.

According to Philadelphia’s NBC-10, the incident began during an argument inside a bar-restaurant in the city’s West Oak Lane neighborhood around 2:30 a.m. local time Wednesday morning.

The argument reportedly carried over into the parking lot, where witnesses told police the two men were both stabbed multiple times.
