Zachary Kafer, Texas Tech Student, Stabbed In Bar Fight

Zachary Kafer, 20, a Texas Tech student from Pearland, TX was stabbed multiple times early Thursday morning during an altercation and died at University Medical Center Emergency Room. Reed Harmon, a Texas Tech student said that he saw Zachary standing at the door of a car when he screamed. Details are still incoming, but LubbockOnline states that Reed drove Zachary to UMC in his car. Upon arrival, Zachary was unconcious.
Police were called to the scene at an ATM at a parking lot outside Mesquites Bar and Grill in the 2400 block of Broadway where they learned that a John Allen, 20, was the suspect. John was arrested at the U-Loft Apartments in the 1000 block of University Avenue and he admitted to using his pocket knife to stab Zachary.
Below you can find a photo of the ATM.

Reports of what actually happened during the altercation are still coming in, but I think that we can all agree that a death from a stabbing during a bar fight is tragic. So for that and many other reasons, our hearts go out to Zachary’s friends and family.

Mesquites Bar and Grill released this statement regarding the stabbing.:
