3 suspects sought in man’s death
HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu police said the investigation into an assault on a homeless man is now a murder investigation.
Authorities are looking for three suspects who attacked a 62-year-old homeless man Friday.
A Honolulu police spokeswoman said the victim died after being hospitalized in critical condition.
Police said the assault happened about 3:10 a.m. Friday in the McCully area near the intersection of King and Punahou streets.
Authorities said the assault occurred following some sort of argument.
This is the second time this month a homeless person in Honolulu died following an attack.
On Dec. 4, an 83-year-old homeless man was found unconscious and beaten in Chinatown. He was pronounced dead the next day.
Police arrested an 18-year-old man in connection with that attack.
