MADRID (AP) — Spanish police have arrested a fourth suspect for the death of a football fan following a brutal street fight between rival “ultra” groups before a match in Madrid last month.

Police say on their official Twitter account that “2 ultras arrested in Valencia for the incidents on November 30 in Madrid, one of them, for homicide.”

The fight between radical supporters of Atletico Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna led to 43-year-old Deportivo fan Francisco Javier Romero Taboada dying from injuries received when he was allegedly beaten by a group of attackers before being pushed into Madrid’s Manzanares River.
