Supposed gang-related fight in Savage

A 20-year-old man remained in the hospital Monday night after a fight broke out in front of a house party early Saturday morning in Savage.
A neighbor told WCCO that a police officer said the fight was gang-related and that police had been called to the house two other times to break up the party. He said that the party was thrown by teenagers while their parents were out of town.
The neighbor said that he saw 20 people in the street fighting and watched the 20-year-old man get hit over the head with a wine bottle. Since the fight is still under investigation, police will not confirm if gang members were involved.
"People who live in the neighborhood said they live there because it is quiet and disturbances are rare." (WCCO)
An uncle of the teenagers throwing the party said that the party started as a small party but got out of control.
The fight is being investigated as a felony assault, and anyone with further information is being asked to call the Savage Police Department.
