    MONTEREY PARK (CNS) – A man who allegedly stabbed another man to death during a brawl at a Monterey Park restaurant was in custody today, authorities said.

    The violence occurred at a Shakey’s restaurant at 1955 S. Atlantic Blvd. at 7:05 p.m. Saturday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported. Patrick Ortega, 25, of Monterey Park, died at the scene.

    Jose Salas, 22, of Bakersfield was arrested Sunday, the Sheriff’s Department reported. Salas was booked on suspicion of murder and being held without bail.
