Two men stabbed each other during a fight early Monday in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side, leaving one dead.

The men, ages 33 and 37, started fighting about 1:50 a.m. inside a home in the 3100 block of West Madison, Chicago Police said.

The younger man, Delray Talbert, was stabbed in the chest and abdomen and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died at 7:21 a.m., according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the neighborhood.

An autopsy Tuesday found he died of multiple stab and incised wounds and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the medical examiner’s office.

The older man was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition with a stab wound to the abdomen. Detectives questioned him, but he was released without being charged with a crime, police said Wednesday morning.
