Weekend in city was violent but not lethal

A stabbing outside a club at about 2:30 a.m. Monday remains under investigation. Two other people, including a woman, were arrested over the weekend in stabbings. One man was arrested Sunday morning for firing a gun and pistol-whipping a woman during a large brawl in the city’s South End.
