A man beaten outside of an Oklahoma City night club died Tuesday of his injuries in Colorado, police said.
Oklahoma City police are treating the Daniel Maxedon’s death as the 15th homicide of 2012. He was found lying on the ground, bleeding from the mouth about 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 27.
Police were called to the area and found three victims. Two suffered minor injuries. Maxedon, 25, of Colorado Springs, Colo. was found in critical condition and taken to the hospital.
He remained in critical condition until he died, Oklahoma Police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said Wednesday.
Investigators said an altercation occurred between the victims and five other men. Police have no descriptions of the men involved in the fight except that they were believed to be Hispanic.
Police think someone has information that could lead to an arrest since the assault occurred during a busy time of morning when businesses might have been closing for the night. The three men they are seeking are seen on surveillance video walking in the area at that time.
Police are still seeking information on the beating. Individuals are asked to the call Crime Stoppers at 235-7300. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
