Marvin Limon, 16, Bayou Body Count No. 150

An arranged fight over a girl turned into a brawl, resulting in one 16-year-old dead and another charged with murder.

Police say a large group of teens gathered under a bridge at Tidwell and Parkhurst on Friday afternoon about 3:45 p.m. to watch two boys fight. It's believed the fight was over a girl, police said.

"Many people in the group then began to fight," police said, and 16-year-old Marvin Limon paired off with another 16-year-old. That boy, whose name is being withheld, stabbed Limon  in the chest.

He later confessed to police and is being held by juvenile authorities on a murder charge.
