Officers responded shortly after 11:35 p.m. Friday to reports of a loud party in the 1100 block of Ocelot Avenue and found two men seriously injured. Paramedics took both victims to an area hospital, where Bethel was pronounced dead. A 21-year-old victim was still undergoing treatment and was expected to survive his injuries, the lieutenant said.
