Crime Police: Two people stabbed after hundreds start brawling at South Side ranch
Italian police officer stabbed with 'much violence,' autopsy report says
An Italian police officer, who was allegedly killed during a confrontation with two American teenagers, was stabbed with "much violence," according to the autopsy report. Since there were no frontal injuries on the officer's thorax and abdomen, the coroner concluded Cerciello Rega was standing very close to the knife-wielding individual, who likely stabbed him by moving his arm from outside toward the officer.
The San Antonio Police Department said it responded to a large brawl that resulted in two people being stabbed and two arrests.
Officers arrived at the incident at the Zarzamora Ranch Rodeo, located at the 11000 block of Zarzamora Street, just after 8 p.m. Sunday. Police were attempting to contact security when a fight broke out over a minor accident, SAPD said.

Arizona inmates don't have right to know more about execution drugs
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has ruled against six inmates seeking more information about the execution process.
As officers attempted to calm the scene, multiple fights began to break out with people attempting to leave the ranch.
Police toned out a large response to the location in an attempt to break it up. SAPD said there were hundreds of people at the location at the time.
The two people — 25-year-old Orlando Munoz and 36-year-old Aviles Lopez — who were allegedly stabbed were taken to the hospital. One needed surgery at San Antonio Military Medical Center and the other was transported to Southwest General in stable condition.
Police arrested 24-year-old Juan Jose Carreon Jr. for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and arrested 28-year-old Randy Lee Quevedo for resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance. Carreon's bail was set at $15,000 and Quevedo's bail was set at $4,500.
Thousands of Paris police deployed over 'yellow vest' clash fears
More than 7,000 police officers are to be deployed for rallies in Paris on Saturday over fears that yellow vest protesters and their radical, anarchist "black blocs" could try to infiltrate a march against climate change in the French capital. The yellow vest movement erupted 10 months ago and blindsided President Emmanuel Macron, who protesters accused of being out of touch with the needs of ordinary French people.
An officer was exposed to Carreon's blood and was taken to University Hospital for exposure.
The investigation is still ongoing.
