A 25-year-old man died early this morning after shards from a broken glass cut his neck at a bar near Fenway Park, according to police.
Just after midnight, two groups were fighting in The Lansdowne Pub when Hector Guardiola, 25, of Boston, allegedly threw a glass, which shattered and inflicted a fatal wound to the victim's neck, according to a preliminary investigation. The victim was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital, where he later died.
The victim's identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, police spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll said.
A 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were also injured by the broken glass.
They were treated at Brigham and Women's Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Guardiola has been charged with manslaughter and two counts of assault and battery with a deadly weapon, police said.
