NAMPA — A 24-year-old man died following a fight at the Ford Idaho Center early Saturday morning, according to Nampa Police.

Nampa Police, who were at the venue providing security at a Banda el Recodo and Los Tucanes De Tijuana concert, responded to a report of a fight around 2:15 a.m. near the parking lot at Entry 1, according to Nampa Police Sgt. Brian Jones.

The fight included about five people, according to Jones. No weapons were used during the fight. Police officers used a Taser on a man who Jones said was not following police orders. Police later questioned the man, Jones said.

Due to conflicting reports, no one has been detained or charged with a crime yet, he said.

The 24-year-old who was transported to a Boise hospital and later died has not been publicly identified. Jones said the man was unconscious when officers arrived to tend to him.

Some witness accounts on Facebook conflict with details from police.
