NEW ORLEANS — Police in New Orleans say a woman fatally stabbed her cousin outside a French Quarter club.

Local news outlets report that 22-year-old Brittany Seymour was stabbed during a fight around 1:15 a.m. Thursday. Police spokesman Beau Tidwell says officers had obtained a warrant to arrest Dannisha Green for the slaying.

Police say the two women had a loud argument and Seymour realized she had been stabbed after onlookers broke up the fight. Seymour later died at a hospital.

Seymour was out celebrating her recent birthday with her sister and a friend when she ran into her cousin while leaving the House of Blues. Family members said the two women argued about Seymour’s ex-boyfriend before the fatal stabbing.
