PHOENIX (AP) - A 22-year-old man is dead following a fight that Phoenix police say occurred after one group of young men made gang signs at another group.

The incident occurred Sunday night near a restaurant at 16th and Van Buren streets.

Witnesses told police that one person pulled a gun and shot Darell D. Hitchins as two groups of four people fought each other.

Sgt. Trent Crump said the case will be submitted to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office for review.
