Two Nepali men pleaded guilty in the High Court Tuesday to the manslaughter of a Nepali teenager, public broadcaster RTHK reported.
Two groups of young Nepalis fought at a basketball court in Nam Pin Wai village in Yuen Long in 2012, the court heard.
A 19-year-old youth was wounded and later certified dead in hospital.
The defense lawyer apologized to the victim’s family on behalf of the two guilty men.
One was a chef aged 23, and the other a bartender aged 27.
The judge is due to sentence them Wednesday.
The court heard that one of the men was holding a hammer during the conflict between the two gangs, and the other was holding a sharp object resembling a knife.
The 19-year-old was also armed.
He tried to escape and jumped over a railing but fell into a coma all of a sudden, the court was told.
The teenager was sent to hospital but declared dead soon afterward.
An autopsy showed that the youth was killed by a wound in his chest that cut through his right lung and aorta.
