Story Tools

SAN JOSE, California (CNN) -- A 23-year-old man was killed and seven others were injured in a brawl between two groups believed to be affiliated with two college fraternities, police said.

There apparently had been "an incident the day before involving the two groups" and they decided to meet at a San Jose park early Wednesday, said Sgt. Steve Dixon of the San Jose police.

He said one of the groups was composed of members of the Pi Alpha Phi fraternity from San Jose State University. The other group "may" have been members of a fraternity at nearby University of California at Santa Cruz, he said.

Dixon said police are interviewing 63 people to "try and figure out what happened." No arrests have been made.
