A death investigation is underway in Columbus after a weekend family gathering turned deadly for a Cleveland, OH man.
Muscogee County Coroner Buddy Bryan said 65-year-old Kirby Scott was attending a retirement party on Front Avenue late Saturday night.
Scott left the gathering and allegedly got into an altercation with a younger relative after he returned to the party. The incident then escalated into what authorities are calling a group assault when other family members jumped in.
Scott went into cardiac arrest at the scene and was transported to Midtown Medical Center where he died around 12:50 a.m. on Monday.
The exact cause of death has not been determined. Bryan said he is hoping the results of an autopsy will reveal more information about how Scott died.
