October 19, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A Randallstown man was in stable condition yesterday at Maryland Shock Trauma Center after he was stabbed several times in the chest Saturday night on the campus of Coppin State College in West Baltimore, a police spokesman said.

Sgt. Scott Rowe said officers found Jermol Burr, 20, of the 3500 block of Corn Stream Road lying in the college parking lot off the 2500 block of W. North Ave. about 8: 45 p.m.

Police said Burr attended a talent show unaffiliated with Coppin at the college's James Weldon Johnson Auditorium, and a disturbance broke out after a rap group refused to leave the stage after its allotted 10-minute performance.

"Apparently, the altercation took place inside, which led to the assault outside," Rowe said.

Rowe said it was not known yesterday if Burr was a student at Coppin or if he had a role in the talent show. The incident is being investigated, he said.
