A man is dead and three others hurt after a party in Indio turned violent early Thursday just after 3AM.
Police are trying to sort out what went down.
We do want to warn you some of the images in the video are disturbing.
It happened on the 83-100 Sonora Avenue in Indio.
Police aren't saying how the person died on the street after the fight broke out.
We do know he's 17-year-old Alexis Ramirez from Thermal.
We spoke with someone who lives at the house where the party turned deadly.
"I guess one guy was acting up and the whole crowd was acting up and everyone started throwing fists and I got into it," said Brian Speres, who was hurt in the fight.
Brian just returned from the hospital, but Alexis Ramirez died in the street.
"I'm so sad about that guy, I'm sad that I've never even met him," said Brian.
But Brian's neighbor had met him.
"I didn't know him good good, but I did hang out with him once or twice," said neighbor, Nancy Ramirez.
Nancy thought she heard gunshots, then police showed up.
"They said it was a stabbing, so I was like okay, I started shaking a little bit," said Nancy.
Blood on the street and shards of glass are the aftermath of a party that turned deadly.
"I don't feel safe anymore, because I live here, and I don't feel safe that much," said Nancy.
Other neighbors told me they don't feel safe.
"I think it's pretty scary you know, we've lived here for a long time, there's all these gunshots and everything, but to know there's a murder close by home, it's pretty scary," said Priscilla, who lives nearby.
Police say it was a large party of family and friends, and for some reason a fight started.
No one has been arrested yet.
"At this point in time we don't have any specific information on the suspects, all we know is the suspects came within the party, and they were either family or friends that were there at the party," said Ben Guitron with the Indio Police Department.
Brian lives at the house, but he says he only knew a few people there -- it was a party for his younger sister.
"I don't like house parties, I don't like parties because one person drinks and mess up the whole party is messed up. I just hope this never happens again, I hope," said Brian.
If you have any information, you are asked to call the Indio Police Department or Crimestoppers at 760-341-STOP.
