A Uniontown woman died early Saturday morning of stab wounds after a fight at a Fayette County bar, state police said.
Rashaunda Fitzgerald, 21, was stabbed about 1:45 a.m. at the Goal Post Lounge in Georges Township. She was taken to Uniontown Hospital where she later died, police said.
During the fight, three other men — Trenton Branch, 25, Montaque Wilson, 21, and Cornell Neal, 25, all of Uniontown — sustained non-life-threatening stab wounds and lacerations. Wilson was flown to UPMC Presbyterian hospital in Oakland for further treatment, police said.
Police said the victims are not cooperating with the investigation. Police are asking anyone that was at the Goal Post Lounge on Friday night who may have information to call the Uniontown state police barracks at 724-439-7111.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
