Nightclub Brawl Kills Medical Student in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP)  Officials say UC-San Francisco medical student Joe Olivares Hernandez died after being injured during a brawl over the weekend at a city nightclub.

Hernandez, 30, a fourth-year med student, was knocked unconscious during a fight at the Temple Nightclub around 1:10 a.m. Sunday.

Authorities say Hernandez was taken off life support earlier Tuesday after his organs were harvested for donation. A 26-year-old man also suffered injuries in the fight.

Police tell the San Francisco Chronicle two other people suffered non-life-threatening stab wounds in another fight that broke out at the club about 35 minutes later.

No arrests have been made in either incident.  City officials have ordered the club to increase security.
