Police said 13 people armed with knives and bats, fought for 5,000 dirhams.
Others later joined the fray, killing at least three people and injuring several others.
Police have not yet identified the suspects, but say they were Asians but did not say what caused the fighting.
According to Gulf News, the accused managed to escape from the scene but police arrested them within 24 hours.
Brigadier Jamal Saleem Al-Jalaf, director of the Dubai Police’s Criminal Investigation Department, said the command and control center had received an emergency call reporting an altercation in the NAF area.
“Our patrol team immediately rushed to the spot to protect the lives and property of the people, where we found three bodies and three others were seriously injured,” he said.
“There were 13 people involved in the fight, three of whom were killed and as many injured,” he said. “Seven people managed to escape before we arrived.”
Colonel Adil Al-Joker, assistant director-general of Criminal Research Affairs, said the suspects were identified and arrested within 24 hours, and legal action would be taken against all, including the injured.
