GLENDALE — A teen-ager was stabbed to death Tuesday night in a brawl involving about a dozen people at Brand Park, authorities said.
The Herbert Hoover High School student, believed to be 18, was stabbed in the chest when a fight erupted between a dozen youths over a stereo about 4:30 p.m., said Lt. Stephen Campbell of the Glendale Police Department.
The Glendale teen-ager died of his wounds a short time later at Thompson Memorial Hospital, Campbell said.
"A large group of 18-year-old males started arguing, which turned into a fistfight, then to baseball bats and finally to a knifing," Campbell said.
Park-goers, including a baseball team of girls about 10 to 12 years old, saw the fight and called police, he added.
