Man Fatally Stabbed Outside Bar Rescue's Racks Billiards & Bourbon

A man was fatally stabbed outside Racks Billiards & Bourbon in Corona, California late on Sunday night.  Police were called to the bar for a reported stabbing, and when they arrived they found a man with a non-threatening stab wound.  That man was taken to the hospital and while the police were investigating the scene, they found another stabbing victim who was already dead when police discovered him.  Police did arrest a suspect and took him into custody for questioning (Link).

Racks Billiards & Bourbon was featured on season 1 of Bar Rescue and before Jon Taffer changed the name, it was called Angel's Sports Bar.  It was the first episode ever to air of Bar Rescue.

This is the third murder to happen at a bar affiliated with Spike's Bar Rescue. In November 2013, a man was fatally shot outside of Second Base Bar & Grill from season 2.  Also, the bar owner of Pit and Barrell murdered a man inside of the bar a few days before the episode was supposed to air on Spike.  Spike TV meant to remove the episode from airing, but mistakenly aired an encore.

There have also been shootings outside of Taza Nightclub in Omaha and So Yo Craft Bar in Yonkers (just happened last week), so be careful out there.

UPDATE - Rack's Billiards & Bourbon closed in 2018 and the building had a fire in 2019 - More information.
