Melee Outside Lake Forest Restaurant Turns Deadly

LAKE FOREST (CBS) — One man was killed and two others injured following a confrontation outside a Lake Forest eatery, authorities confirmed.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies responded to a melee in the parking lot of Albatros Mexican Restaurant on Rockfield Boulevard near Lake Forest Boulevard about 2:03 a.m. Saturday, Orange County sheriff’s Lt. Colin Murphy said.

All of the victims, identified as men in their 20s, were taken to hospitals, where one later died, Murphy said. His name was withheld pending notification of his family.

A second man undergoing surgery was listed in critical condition, Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said. A third victim suffered non-life threatening cuts and abrasions.

There was no word yet on what sparked the confrontation, which apparently started inside the restaurant and continued to the parking lot, Amormino said.

Amormino said 18 witnesses were being interviewed.

He tells KNX 1070’s Ed Mertz that it’s very rare for something like this to happen in the city of Lake Forest, which has been named one of the safest cities in America.

    They were white.

    Since 99% of child molesters are white, do you assume they were arguing over who to molest next?

    Idiot.

      Ben:
      Go on the Megans Law website and put your zip code and any other zip in L.A./O.C.

      What will you see Ben? The majority of RSO’s on the list are Hispanic. Many on the list love to sexually assault children under 13, many times family members.

  2. Ben IncaHutz says:

    It is California, where alot of whites eat Mexican food.

    Another idiot.

    Check the stats Ben. Chances are the only Role for Whites was calling 911.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close their bad cases.

    Corrupt DoJ employees destabilize problem suspects with torture (sleep deprivation, stress positions, drugging, etc…) and use gang members and corrupt police to do their murders.

    Eric Scott in Las Vegas was killed in a similar manner.

    DOJ employees have been harassing me for 20 years.

    What do you have against his family? I happen to know the victim and his family and they are some of the nicest, most genuine people I know. You don’t need to come on here being disrespectful.
