Man, 19, Stabbed in Suspected Gang Fight

From Times Staff Reports

A 19-year-old man was stabbed in the chest and wrist Sunday night in Newhall in a possible gang-related fight, authorities said.

Michael Ahern was taken by friends to Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital, where he underwent surgery, said Det. Ignacio Somoano of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Ahern and his friends, identified by authorities as gang members, were involved in a fight near Market and Pine streets shortly before midnight, Somoano said, adding that the stabbing might be related to an incident that same night in which gunfire was heard.

Hospital officials declined to comment on Ahern's condition.

No one was arrested.
