A 14-year-old boy died and another teen was hospitalized after they got into a knife fight at a midtown apartment complex Friday night, police say.

Police were called to the complex in the 4400 block of East 29th Street between South Columbus Boulevard and South Swan Road about 9:45 p.m., Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a news release.

Officers found Mike Garcia, 14, with several stab wounds. He was taken to a local hospital where he died about 10 hours later, Widmer said.

Police also found a 15-year-old with multiple stab wounds in an apartment. He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Widmer said.

Witnesses told detectives that the teens stabbed each other, Widmer said.
