Three Men Injured in Suspected Gilroy Gang-Related Fight with Two Teens

GILROY (BCN)– Two teen boys were arrested Sunday in a suspected gang-related fight in Gilroy where one man was stabbed and two men received head injuries, police said today.

At 4:07 p.m. Sunday, Gilroy police answered a report about a brawl involving a number of people in the 8300 block of Springdale Court, a couple of blocks south of Leavesley Road, police Sgt. Pedro Espinoza said.

When officers arrived, they found three Gilroy men aged, 21, 23 and 32, suffering from injuries, one with a stab wound and two with head injuries, Espinoza said.

Medical personnel transported the three victims to a hospital and all were expected to survive, he said.

Police received a description of the suspects and their vehicle, a silver BMW sedan, which officers located, with the suspects inside, about two miles from the crime scene.

The boys, a 17-year-old from Gilroy and a 15-year-old from Hollister, were taken into custody on suspicion of attempted murder involving stabbing or blunt force.

From a preliminary investigation, police believe that the fight resulted from a conflict over gang affiliation and detectives from the department’s Anti-Crime Team have taken over the probe.

Anyone with information about the altercation is urged to notify Anti-Crime Team detectives at (408) 846-0350.
