Flagstaff police: 1 dead, 2 injured in gang fight

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A teenager is in custody and two other suspects are
being sought after a fatal gang-related fight in Flagstaff.

Flagstaff police say the Sunday morning fight was between rival gangs
retaliating against each other for a prior incident.

Police say 23-year-old Juan Hernandez died of stab wounds. Two other people are
expected to recover from their injuries.

Police say a 17-year-old boy was arrested Sunday night and they’re looking for
two 21-year-old men as “persons of interest” in the case.

The teen has been booked into the Coconino County Jail on suspicion of
second-degree homicide. His name isn’t being released by The Associated Press
because he’s a juvenile.
