Brandon Banks Recovering From Stabbing, Expected To Make 'Full Recovery'

Brandon Banks continues to progress while recovering from injuries sustained in a D.C. nightclub early Saturday morning, as his agent James Gould confirmed to Mike Jones of the Washington Post.

"He's recovering well, there's no damage and no residual effects, so it looks like he's going to make a full recovery and be just fine," the agent, James Gould, said in a phone interview. "Brandon's friend also is recovering. He was talking today, and also is expected to make a full recovery."

Banks is expecting to be released from the hospital later tonight. This contradicts earlier reports that Banks had already been released from the hospital yesterday.

Jones has also reported that the suspect in the incident, Jason D. Shorter of Lanham, MD, had his charges reduced by the U.S. Attorney from "assault with the intent to kill" to "assault with a dangerous weapon."

Banks' long-time friend Christopher Nixon, who was stabbed multiple times in the face and body, underwent surgery and was listed in critical condition as of yesterday.
