Man fatally stabbed in bar fight in New River

NEW RIVER, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a fight at a New River bar turned deadly with someone stabbing a man.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the fight occurred at the Roadrunner Bar Cafe along Black Canyon Highway around 1 a.m. Sunday.

Someone reported a man needing medical attention in the bar's parking lot and responding officers found 48-year-old Roman Fernandez.

Sheriff's spokesman Joaquin Enriquez says Fernandez had gotten into a fight on the patio and then was stabbed.

Daisy Mountain firefighters administered life-saving procedures but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sheriff's deputies have made no arrests and are still trying to gather descriptions of suspects.

Enriquez did not say what led to the fight.
