WOODWARD (AP) — 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.
