Monday, June 11, 2007

LEBANON, Mo. (AP) -- A Lebanon teenager died Monday and another was injured after a brawl at a park, and police said the fight appeared to be prearranged.

Police found the two males unconscious around 11 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot at Atchley Park.

Zackary Jones, 17, of Lebanon died at a Springfield hospital. The other teenager is in stable condition with serious injuries at St. John's Hospital, Police Chief Sam Mustard said.

Both had wounds consistent with blunt-force trauma to the head and body, but no weapons have been recovered, he said.

Two men, one woman and a male juvenile were being held for questioning on Monday, Mustard said.

Police were still investigating the cause of the dispute that led to the fatal brawl.
