El Paso Man Killed In Fight Outside Party
Police in El Paso say a man was stabbed to death early Sunday outside a large house party.
El Paso police officers were responding to a suspicious vehicle call shortly after midnight when they saw the house party. They were told someone was hurt and found a 21-year-old man with serious injuries. He was taken a local hospital, but died a short time later. His name was not released.
Police said in a statement that a confrontation had taken place near the home where the party was being thrown. The victim was stabbed and the suspect fled. It was El Paso's 17th murder of the year, three more than this time last year.
