Police here are investigating a weekend brawl at a nightclub that left eight people injured, including at least two with stab wounds.
The fight involving about 200 people broke out shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday in the Palace Theater in this Madison County village.
Hamilton is home to Colgate University. School officials told the Post-Standard of Syracuse they don't believe any Colgate students were injured. Students from Morrisville State College, New York City and Utica were at the night spot, as well, a club worker told the newspaper.
Police said the fighting started inside the club and then spilled out to the streets. When deputies arrived, more than 400 people were in the club and on the street, police said.
Law enforcement agencies from Madison County and three neighboring counties were called in to help local police disperse the crowd.
