MMA fighter Jahreau Shepherd stabbed to death at his own 30th birthday party

A professional MMA fighter, Jahreau Shepherd who competed for Bellator in 2018 has been stabbed to death at his own 30th birthday party in London.

The 30-year-old welterweight fighter, known as “The Nightmare,” died at the scene, police said. According to an eyewitness account, paramedics tried to save him, with his mother shouting, “please keep going, please save my baby.”

Earlier in the evening, Shepherd was celebrating at a backyard BBQ with friends and family, including his mother and small children.

But, something went terribly wrong and later in the evening, Shepherd was reportedly attacked, suffering fatal wounds in the process.

A tribute to Shepherd has already sprung up at the site where he was killed with flowers and picture of him holding championship belts.

Scotland Yard is treating Shepherd's death as a murder -- describing it as a "terrible attack" -- though so far, no arrests have been made.

Officials are asking for witnesses to come forward -- but it sounds like they have some leads.

Shepherd had a 6-2 record in his fighting career and won titles in both CEA and UCMMA in his last two bouts.

His management company is devastated over the loss.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help with funeral costs.
