During the fight Ramirez and his two friends were stabbed, police say. Ramirez died and the other two were taken to Ben Taub General Hospital so doctors could treat their multiple wounds.

Investigators believe the shooting occurred at a different location and say they have no motive or suspects.

Perhaps redefining the word "vague," police issued the following information about the killing of 18-year-old Edward Raymond Williams early Saturday morning at 7600 Beechnut:

"He was shot at an unknown apartment complex in southwest Houston for an unknown reason. At this time, there is no known motive or suspect(s)."
