2 fatally killed after fight near house party

The Arizona Republic reports:

2 fatally killed after fight near house party

Two men are dead after an early morning shooting in south Phoenix, police said.

Officers responded to a shooting near 36th Avenue and Broadway Road a little after midnight Friday, police said.

Officers arrived to find numerous people fleeing and were directed to a 27-year-oldman who was dead in the alley from gunshot wounds, police said.

Police later learned that another victim, a 20-year-old man, died as he was being driven to St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center.

Investigators received initial reports of a party in the area and a fight nearby.

No further information was available.

It's too bad they weren't non-fatal killings. (Perhaps an editor changed "shot" to "killed"?)

UPDATE: They changed the link to say "2 fatally shot" and on the story itself to "2 shot, killed after fight near house party."
