Indigenous leader's nephew killed in brawl

NT Police are investigating the death of a man - the nephew of political candidate Jacinta Price.

A neighbour has recalled hearing screaming coming from the Alice Springs property where a man died after a fight with weapons.

Ms Price, who ran for the CLP in the seat of Lingiari at the last federal election, posted to Twitter at 8pm: "Another nephew of mine murdered."

"The alleged perpetrators were Aboriginal," she said.

"This violence is far more prevalent than deaths in custody but Black Lives Matters protestors aren't interested in these deaths."

The resident, who did not want to be named, said the screaming started at 2.30am.

"And you could hear screaming, men and women, smashing of glass and banging like someone was kicking a fence in constantly it was still going at 7am this morning it started at about 2.30.

"It sounded absolutely insane like somebody was getting killed."
