Riverton, Utah (AP) - Five people were injured during a fight that included somebody wielding a hatchet.
Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Don Hutson says the fight started when a group of people who were not invited to the party did not leave when they were asked. Hutson says at one point during the fight early Saturday someone grabbed a hatchet and began swinging it.
Police were notified by staff at several emergency rooms, who reported some of the injured victims had sought medical help.
Three boys and two girls were treated at area hospitals for injuries. The most serious was a 16-year-old boy who had a gash in his head.
Hutson says investigators were still trying to determine who wielded the hatchet.
