Police say a bouncer who was stabbed a week ago at a Scottsdale nightclub has died.

Scottsdale police spokesman Sgt. Mark Clark said Tyrice Thompson died Saturday morning from the stab wounds.

According to investigators, the 27-year-old Thompson of Laveen was stabbed five times in the back, hip, and arm after an altercation inside the club early morning on Jan. 27.

Police later arrested a 26-year-old Tempe man in connection with the stabbing.

Investigators say he admitted that he was involved in the fight but denied stabbing Thompson.

Thompson is graduate of South Mountain High School in Phoenix and a former wide receiver for Arizona State University having graduated in 2007.

It was unclear if the suspect had an attorney.
