Three people were stabbed early Wednesday at a Manhattan club that was hosting a record release party for a new collection of duets featuring slain rapper Notorious B.I.G. Authorities could not confirm reports that the party was attended by Sean "Diddy" Combs and Notorious B.I.G.'s mother, Voletta Wallace. The two co-produced the new "Duets" record, which pairs the rapper's vocals with Eminen, Jay-Z and other artists. Police said that at 3:10 a.m., patrol officers heard gunfire at a parking garage near the club. Inside, they found three men with gunshot wounds; all were taken to the hospital in stable condition.Part 2
Approximately 2,000 people packed a church in South Los Angeles to pay tribute to Stanley Tookie Williams, who was executed by the state of California last week. Williams founded the gang the Crips and was executed for murdering four people in 1979. The gathering featured celebrities, civil rights leaders and gang members. Among those speaking at the service were the Reverend Jesse Jackson and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. As the funeral ended, 100 doves were released out of the church. There were some brief scuffles between rival gang members after the service and three shots were heard outside the church, causing some to duck for cover.Part 3
