A 16-year-old was stabbed to death in a physical altercation that escalated quickly Tuesday evening in southeast Fresno.

Fresno police said they received reports around 5 p.m. of a fight near the Amigo Market that had spilled into the intersection of Belmont and Millbrook avenues.

When police arrived, they found the 16-year-old, identified Wednesday by the Fresno County coroner’s office as Steve Stone, with multiple stab wounds in the courtyard of an apartment complex near Olive Avenue and Millbrook.

Stone was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, where he later died, according to Fresno police Capt. Anthony Martinez.

Officers also received a report of a second victim, a 32-year-old, who was in one of the apartment units. The man, who was not named by authorities, was taken to Community Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening stab wounds.

Martinez said police believe the two victims were both on the same side of the fight.

No arrests had been made as of midday Wednesday.
