DALLAS -

(AP) - A 31-year-old man is expected to face a murder charge after Dallas police say he stabbed another person outside a nightclub.
    
Police say Adolph Junior Menjivar exchanged words with Fernando Lopez after 2 a.m. Sunday at a nightclub in southwest Dallas. Both men were in separate vehicles. Police say Menjivar eventually got out of his car, armed with a folding knife, and started to attack Lopez in his upper body.
    
Police say witnesses tried to pull Menjivar away, and two off-duty officers working at the club eventually disarmed him. The officers and one of the witnesses were stabbed.
    
A police spokesman says Menjivar will be charged with murder, two counts of aggravated assault of a public servant and one count of aggravated assault.
    
He did not have an attorney listed.
