Lt. Jim Remer: "If there's somebody that was driving by or saw this from afar, we'd be interested in speaking to that person. We don't know if they're out there or not. As far as direct involvement, we believe we've identified most of those people and have spoken to them."

  The States Attorney's office will review the case for possible charges against those involved in the fight.
