FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A teenager is in custody and two other suspects are being sought after a fatal gang-related fight in Flagstaff.

Flagstaff police say the Sunday morning fight was between rival gangs retaliating against each other for a prior incident.

Police say 23-year-old Juan Hernandez died of stab wounds. Two other people are expected to recover from their injuries.

Police say a 17-year-old boy was arrested Sunday night and they're looking for two 21-year-old men as ``persons of interest'' in the case.

The teen has been booked into the Coconino County Jail on suspicion of second-degree homicide. His name isn't being released by The Associated Press because he's a juvenile.
