CHICAGO — A minor crash on the Northwest Side sparked a deadly brawl early Monday morning, according to police, leaving a 28-year-old man stabbed to death and three others seriously wounded.
Investigators believe it began just after 2 a.m. Monday, as a group of friends left a bar near the 5300 block of West Irving Park Road. While they headed towards their parked car, they witnessed a male driver hit it, causing minor damage.
After the group started arguing with the driver, he got out of the vehicle, started fighting the men, and pulled out a knife. He stabbed four of the men before driving away, police said, and a fifth man with them was also beaten.
A 28-year-old man stabbed in the chest was transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead. Another 28-year-old man, a 27-year-old man and a 29-year-old were also transported to Illinois Masonic in critical condition.
The 28-year-old man who was beaten was transported to Community First Medical Center in good condition.
No one is in custody, although it's believed that more than one person may have been involved in the attack. Anyone with information is asked to call Chicago police.
