ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A teenager is charged with murdering another teen during a fight Sunday night in Early County, and investigators say they'll likely arrest more people.  

Deputies were called out to a large fight Off Chattahoochee Avenue near the Blakely Cemetery around 11:30 Sunday night.

They found 19-year old Xsavier Sanchez on the ground surrounded by a crowd of about 20 people. He died a short time later at Early Memorial Hospital. Deputies aren't yet saying how Sanchez died.

A 16-year-old is charged with murdering him. Investigators say they still have dozens of witnesses to question and expect more charges.

The victim's body is scheduled for an autopsy Tuesday in Atlanta.
