TEMPE, Ariz. -- Four people were arrested Saturday night after a fight broke out at a fraternity party in Tempe. A fifth person was arrested Sunday night and one suspect was still at large.

According to police, the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity was throwing a party at an apartment complex near McClintock and University when a female high school student from Surprise who had been at her prom showed up.

The girl’s ex-boyfriend and another guy later showed up at the party looking for the girl, prompting a fight to break out.

According to authorities, one person suffered serious head injuries during the altercation and was taken to the hospital.

The two who came looking for the girl were also roughed up in the fight and said they were going to get friends and return to the party with guns.

Police said the teens did indeed return to the party with several others and they began assaulting people with baseball bats and other weapons.

Two of the people with the ex-boyfriend also fired multiple shots into the air, but no one was shot.

The group fled the scene in a car, but they were stopped a short time later by police.

All six of the people inside the vehicle fled on foot, with four of them being taken into custody.  A fifth was arrested later Sunday.

Police have not yet arrested any of the DKE frat members but said detectives are still looking for other suspects and more arrests are still possible.  Investigators are combing through surveillance video from the apartment complex which they said clearly shows both fights.

According to authorities, the original four people arrested were 19-year-old Isaiah Everett, 18-year-old Zack Rezendes, 19-year-old Clarissa Casillas, and 19-year-old Michael Reyes. The fifth person police arrested has been identified as Caleb James Everett, 20. The outstanding suspect has not been identified.
