A fight broke out early Friday outside a bar in the Northland that left several people hurt, according to Kansas City Police.

The incident occurred about 2:30 a.m. after a dispute involving a game of pool at Arthur’s Lounge in the 8100 block of NW Prairie View Road, near Interstate 29 and Barry Road.

A woman called police and said her boyfriend had been attacked by a group of people in the lounge parking lot. The alleged attackers drove away in an SUV. Police arrived and spoke with three people who said they were involved in the fight.

Officers recovered a knife in the parking lot where the incident occurred.

Officers were later told that another person involved in the fight was brought to the hospital by several people in the SUV. That person had cuts to his neck and arm, which hospital officials said were life-threatening. He was taken to another hospital.
