Weekend Fight Leaves One Dead, One Injured

KSCB News - June 12, 2012 9:36 pm

Woodward police say one man is dead and

another injured after a weekend fight at the Woodward County

Fairgrounds.

The Woodward News reports that 19-year-old Luis Alberto Saldana

died after the altercation early Sunday morning. His brother,

20-year-old Luis Jose Saldana was injured, but authorities say he

has been released from the hospital.

Detective Lt. Chuck Wheeler says both men were apparently

stabbed. Wheeler says the brothers were attending a dance at the

fairgrounds when they got into a fight with another set of

brothers.

Authorities say the investigation continues to determine whether

anyone will face charges.

An official with the Woodward County Fair Board says the dance

was a private party and the altercation happened in the parking

lot.
