A massive fight between teens and some adults left one person dead and nine others charged with murder.

The fight occurred in Hephzibah, Georgia, south of the city of Augusta. Police stated that the fight started over an argument between two teen girls at Glenn Hills High School. Tensions soon built as friends of the girls took sides and decided to settle the matter after school. The mother of one of the 15-year-old girls stated that a crowd of 30-50 people came to her home with baseball bats, knives, pipes and other weapons, calling for her daughter to come outside and fight.

As the brawl began, neighbors watched from their homes in what police are calling a senseless display of violence. Demajhay Bell, 18 was inside his home but decided to go outside to witness the spectacle. That is when police say that he was stabbed in the neck by Demetrius Harris Jr., 21, a friend of Bell. Bell died two days later at a local hospital from his injury. Witnesses have described a chaotic scene with girls fighting, boys hitting each other with bats and a car attempting to run over several teens.

Richmond County Sheriff Richard Roundtree was outraged over the incident and has taken a hard line with the participants involved in the fight. The mother of one of the teen girls has also been arrested. Eyvette Byrd, 39, was among those charged with murder by the sheriff for allowing the fight to occur. Also arrested and charged were a mother and daughter identified as Quiauna and Quiasha Henley, 35 and 18.

      She did call the police and several other neighbors called it took 20minutes for them to get there and she is a good person/mother everything happened so fast as a mother in a crazy situation/ambush like this she just wanted to protect herself and kids from 50 ppl swinging bats,knives and pipes.No mother should have brought there kid +50 ppl to beat anyone as an adult both mothers should have talked to each other and figure out a solution.
