A young man has suffered life-threatening head injuries in a brawl in Sydney and police are investigating it as a potential homicide.

Detective Superintendent John Duncan said the fight broke out between two groups.

“We understand there’s two different groups. The young man fighting for his life is from the western suburbs of Sydney, Fairfield way,” he said.

“The other group is from the Eastern Beaches area.

“The family would be devastated.”

Loved ones have been posting about Mr Tuala on social media, describing him as “our sweet, sweet boy”.

“You came into this world and brought so much love into our family,” one wrote.

Before the incident, the groups are believed to have been thrown out of the Oxford Hotel over what is said to have been a minor incident.

As police arrived, the alleged culprits ran away.

Officers arrested three men. Police are asking for witnesses to come forward and say they are treating the incident as a potential homicide.
