Man Charged in Fatal Stabbing After Amon Amarth / Arch Enemy Show


A man was stabbed last weekend during an altercation that erupted after the Amon Amarth / Arch Enemy show in Edmonton. The man was rushed to the hospital but eventually died of his wounds.

In a new report from CTV News, the identity of both the victim and attacker have been revealed as David Cox, 34, and Andrew Bishop, 36, respectively. Bishop has been charged with manslaughter. Police told CTV that the victim and attacker did not know each other, but no other details about what caused the fight or what transpired have been released.

On behalf of everyone at MetalSucks, our thoughts are with Cox’s family and friends.

Anyone who witnessed the altercation is asked to call Edmonton police at 780-423-4567 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
