Man killed when hundreds brawl at bowling alley

Posted: Updated:

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) - Prosecutors say a man was apparently beaten to death during a large brawl that broke out during a party at a central New Jersey bowling alley.

But it's still not clear what started the brawl, which began around 1:30 a.m. Saturday in Piscataway and involved roughly 250 people. Authorities say the combatants were fighting inside the alley and in the parking lot, but most of them fled when police arrived.

Acting Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey says 23-year-old Jamount Atkins man was injured during the brawl and taken to a hospital, where he died shortly after. Autopsy reports haven't been disclosed, but Carey says it appeared Atkins was the victim of a beating.

No arrests have been made in connection with the brawl or Atkins' death.
