MINNEAPOLIS, MN – On August 2, police arrested Emmanuel Ejiro Ogboru, 22, following an investigation into a fatal assault, which took place outside a nightclub in the city last month.
In the early morning hours of July 24, a 25-year-old man was punched in the head near the intersection of Lowry Avenue N. and Penn Avenue N.
The victim's skull was fractured and the blow caused a massive brain bleed, according to hospital staff.
His injuries required emergency surgery.
The victim was punched and knocked unconscious during the fight, according to the complaint.
Medical staff told the victim's family that his brain injury was likely fatal, and the victim died two days later.
Witnesses and surveillance footage identified Ogboru as the assailant.
Ogboru has been charged with murder, first-degree manslaughter and second-degree manslaughter, and was initially held on $50,000 bail at the Hennepin County Jail.
Incredibly, he was released four days later to a “HALFWAY HOUSE/TREATMENT PROGRAM,” where he remains.
