PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The owner of a Providence nightclub has agreed to close the venue temporarily after two men and a teenage boy were stabbed during a rap concert.

Providence officials say Simon’s 677 will remain closed through Monday, when the city’s Board of Licenses will hold a hearing on whether it can reopen.

Police say the victims were stabbed Wednesday night during a fight that began inside the club during a concert featuring rapper Lil Bibby, then moved outside.

A 21-year-old man, 20-year-old man and a 16-year-old boy were stabbed and treated for non-life threatening injuries at Roger Williams Hospital.

No arrests have been made, and what started the fight isn’t clear.
