An autopsy report shows a teen who died in a reported fight in Phoenix Wednesday morning had a medical condition.

The autopsy determined Edgar Box, 19, had an enlarged heart and a pre-existing heart condition that led to his death, Phoenix police said Friday.

Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes said Box collapsed when the fight was over at a condo development off 28th Drive and Cactus. Box was never struck by anyone, police said.

Police said the teen's friends stayed with him until help arrived.
