SOUTH SALT LAKE — Stabbings at a South Salt Lake strip club have left one man dead, another seriously injured and yet another in jail

Police spokesman Gary Keller says 43-year-old Isaac Gallegos of South Salt Lake was arrested after a late Saturday brawl at the Southern Exposure Club.

He was booked on various charges, including aggravated homicide and attempted aggravated homicide.

Keller says the fight moved from inside the club to its parking lot, where the two men were stabbed.

A 27-year-old Bakersfield, Calif., man was pronounced dead at the scene with multiple stab wounds. His name was withheld pending notification of family members.

A 29 year-old male security guard at the club was hospitalized in serious condition. His name also wasn’t immediately released.

The 11 p.m. stabbings are under investigation.
