Man Arrested For Fatal Weekend Fight Outside Seattle Housing Facility

Detectives have arrested a 55-year-old man in connection with a fatal weekend fight outside a Seattle housing facility.

Two residents of the housing facility, located in the 1800 block of Eastlake Avenue, left the facility just before 3 AM Saturday and began fighting one another. The victim, a 47-year-old man, was injured in the fight, and returned to his apartment at the facility. About 10 hours later, staff at the facility notified police that the victim was found in medical distress and was taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Police arrested a 55-year-old man who had fought with the victim and booked him into the King County Jail for assault.

The 47-year-old man later died from his injuries, leading police to re-book the 55-year-old suspect into jail for Investigation of Homicide.
