(CNN) – Three people are in jail after a wedding reception brawl in Philadelphia. First-responders arrived after at least two wedding parties got into a fight.

It started inside a Sheraton hotel, early Sunday morning, but spilled into the street. During the chaos, a 57-year-old man suffered a heart attack. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

It’s not clear how the fight started. One of the three men who were arrested has been charged with assaulting a police officer. Police are consulting video of the brawl and considering charges against more of the people who were involved.
