A man has been arrested in the stabbings of two members of rapper Nicki Minaj's tour, one of whom died.

Authorities say 31-year-old Pierce Boykin was arrested on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and related offences.

The double stabbing left 29-year-old Devon Pickett dead and a second member of Minaj's tour severely wounded.

The 27-year-old man is in critical condition.

Police say the stabbing occurred outside a bar after the victims argued with a man inside.

According to Minaj, the crew members had arrived in Philadelphia only two days earlier to rehearse for a tour.
