A man has died, and two others have been left critically injured, following a frenzied brawl at a park in Brisbane’s north.
Police confirmed one death and 10 injuries resulted from the altercation between groups of people – aged in their 20s – about 5:30pm on Sunday at O’Callaghan Park in Zillmere.
It’s believed one of the groups was sitting in the park when the other group arrived and the altercation was sparked.
“We believe knives and baseball bats were used in that attack,” Det. Supt. Tony Flemming said.
“We know one man has died and about ten other people have been hospitalised as a result of this incident.”
Police believe the incident was in retaliation to an earlier attack in the western suburbs and fear the violence may escalate further.
