2 Fatally Stabbed At Memorial Gathering

PHOENIX (AP) — Police say two people were fatally stabbed while at a memorial gathering at a Phoenix apartment complex.

Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos says a dispute that led to the stabbing early Sunday erupted as dozens of people from Burma, also known as Myanmar, were in a three-bedroom apartment to mourn the death of someone they knew.

Investigators are examining the source of the dispute.

No arrests have been made.

Martos says police were facing a language barrier in interviewing people who were in the apartment at the time.
