Man stabbed outside Mellwood Arts Center

A man was fatally stabbed outside the Mellwood Arts Center.  People were still inside celebrating a Quinceanera during the time of the stabbing.

A Quinceanera is the Hispanic version of a Sweet 16.

Sources say Juan Villarreal got into an argument with another man inside the center and later went outside.  Moments later Villarreal was stabbed several times.  He was then taken to University Hospital.

Some at the party say the suspect was a man from San Antonio, Texas.  Police have not confirmed that information.

35-year-old Villarreal worked construction and drywall jobs around Metro Louisville.
