BEMIDJI, Minn. - The Twitterverse is all a-tweet about a Black Friday stabbing at Wal-Mart in Bemidji. The rumor is partially true.

"The incident is not Black Friday related and is currently under investigation," said Bemidji Police Sgt. Dave Markert.

Markert confirmed a 28-year-old victim was stabbed and that there was an "altercation" between two adult men Thursday morning inside the Wal-Mart store in Bemidji. However, claims that a man was stabbed over a television on Black Friday morning are false. The incident report did not state that the argument involved merchandise.

The victim called the Bemidji Pioneer after the rumor started to circulate to say it was not over a television, but over a Facebook post.

"Social media sucks," he said.

The victim was transported to a Bemidji emergency room, where he received stitches and was released, he said.
