South Fla. man fatally shot during baptism party

Posted: Updated:

A 21-year-old man was fatally shot when a fight broke out during a baptism party.

Police say the shooting happened early Sunday after a crowd showed up at a North Miami Beach home for a party that was announced on the social media site Tagged.

The Miami Herald reports a brawl broke out between four to five women and a man because there wasn't enough food and utensils. When Wilson Alexis tried to intervene, shots were fired. He was taken to a hospital where he died.

The party was being thrown for a 5-month-old boy. But dozens of people with no ties to the family showed up and the party got out of control.

The homeowner called police, but the fight escalated before they arrived.
