Investigators believe the ordeal started as a fight inside a home and spilled out onto the street. Karen Witherspoon, a neighbor, told NBC10 she then heard commotion outside her window.
"I was walking into the living room getting ready to sit down and I heard screams like, 'Help me! Help me! Help me!' I saw a lady over him and she was trying to revive him," Witherspoon said. "And she kept saying, 'Call the police.'"
Police told NBC10 they're currently questioning the man they believe is responsible for the victim's death.
