As the sun shone mid afternoon in the streets of Verona, Italy, on Corso Cavour Blvd, Tybalt and his kinsmen approached Mercutio and Benvolio.
It was said that Tybalt was to fight against Romeo but Mercutio felt that Romeo wasn’t a worthy of opponent so he took it upon himself to fight Tybalt.

He told reporters that Romeo was so enraged at the fact that Mercutio had died that he fought against Tybalt.
Reporters say that Romeo had killed Tybalt during the fight. “Romeo is not the kind of person to fight against anyone, especially someone like Tybalt. It was a shock to see that he had killed Tybalt”, said Benvolio.
According to an eye witness at the scene of the crime, Capulet and Lady Capulet had arrived to see what had happened. Lady Capulet saw her dear nephew dead and told Capulet to banish whoever was responsible for the death.
After much investigation, police had found out that Romeo had killed Tybalt and that Tybalt had killed Mercutio.
Therefore it was said that Capulet had declared Romeo to be banished from the streets of Verona and to never show his face again.
“I am sick and tired of this insane behaviour! I do not understand why this dreadful hatred has to continue. Since Romeo killed Tybalt, a dear nephew of mine, I proclaim that Romeo is banished from Verona grounds. And if he is to come back I will have no choice but to take his life!” Capulet strongly stated.
According to reports, there is no further information on the banishment of Romeo.
