Man dies after fight in homeless camp

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) — A 52-year-old man died at a homeless camp on Maui after getting in a fight.

According to the Maui News (http://is.gd/4yelzf), police were called to the camp in Waiehu at 2:25 a.m. Thursday after receiving a report that four men were fighting.

Lt. Jayson Rego of the Criminal Investigation Division says officers found the man unresponsive in a tent and started cardiopulmonary resuscitation. He was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Police say an investigation revealed that the victim had been involved in an argument that became physical and had been thrown to the ground.

The man eventually went back to his tent where he collapsed.

Police say there were no obvious signs of injury. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
