A man has died after a brawl involving a large crowd broke out in Sydney’s south-west on Friday night.
Just before 9.40pm police responded to calls for help at Ingleburn, after reports of vicious fight involving several people.
The brawl is believed to have begun during a party at a home on Chester Road before spilling into the street, with more people arriving in vehicles, some armed with baseball bats.
Once police arrive, party goers and those involved in the fight started to flee.
An 18-year-old man was located on the roadway with serious head injuries.
He was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics, who conveyed him to Liverpool Hospital, where he was declared deceased.
A number of weapons, allegedly including a baseball bat and golf club, along with wooden and metal poles were seized for forensic examination.
Four men, all aged 19, were arrested and were taken to Campbelltown Police Station.
The operation involved officers from Campbelltown Police Area Command, with assistance from the Public Order and Riot Squad, the Dog Unit, Rescue Squad, Police Transport Command, and officers from other South-West Metropolitan Region Police Area Commands.
