Lou Ferrin, Detroit Security Guard, Second To Be Killed At Pandemonium Nightclub In 4 Months

Another security guard lost his life after he was stabbed outside the nightclub he was hired to protect -- and it's the same venue where another guard was recently killed on the job.

Detroit police say the fatal encounter took place at about 1 a.m. Sunday morning, as the guard was escorting a patron out of Pandemonium, a nightclub in downtown Detroit's Bricktown district. The assailant is described as a 5-foot-8 African American man dressed in a blue shirt and khaki pants. According to police, he fled from the scene following the attack.

WXYZ reports the victim was a 40-year-old man named Lou Ferrin who also worked in the steel industry and had plans to get married.

Police say no arrests have yet been made in connection with the killing.

Ferrin is the second security guard to be killed while working at the club in recent months. In June, 39-year-old Marcel Jackson was killed in a drive-by shooting that happened after a patron was kicked out of the club for hitting a woman.

Jackson had six children and was a volunteer with the Detroit 300, a local crime-fighting organization.

The suspect in his murder is believed to be a 5-foot-7 dark-skinned man who was riding in a gray Dodge Charger.
