Madison police said a man has been arrested in connection with a stabbing during a fight that broke out in the East Towne Mall parking lot.
Police said Marcos A. Gamez, 18, of Madison, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of attempted first-degree intentional homicide. Police said he turned himself in after learning he was wanted in the case.
Police said the preliminary investigation indicates that Gamez, who is gang-affiliated, helped start a fight just before midnight Saturday in the parking lot outside Buffalo Wild Wings with members of a rival gang by mouthing off to the other group.
The original physical fight was between two of Gamez's friends and two men from the other group, police said.
Police said the 24-year old victim, who is also gang-affiliated, was with the other gang members and tried to break up the fight. When he did so, he was stabbed by Gamez, police said.
