BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge Police Department has filed an arrest warrant for a suspect in connection with the stabbing of an LSU football player at a bar near campus early Tuesday morning.

Dillon Gordon, 22, was stabbed during a fight inside Reggie’s in Tigerland around 12:45 a.m. He was released from the hospital Tuesday afternoon after being treated for multiple lacerations and cuts.

Police say 20-year-old Jamal Vaughn is wanted for aggravated second degree battery in connection to the incident. He allegedly stabbed Gordon a few times after they got into a fight. 

Gordon is a LSU senior starting tight end from Edgard near New Orleans. He missed most of the 2015 season with an Achilles injury after starting the first two games of the season. He returned to action to start the Florida game on October 17, but re-injured the Achilles and was done for the season. 

LSU has asked the NCAA to grant Gordon a medical redshirt so he can play the 2016 season. Gordon, who went to John Curtis High School, started 25 games in the 2013 and ’14 seasons.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 344-7867.
