SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a Salina man has died after a fight in a fast-food restaurant parking lot.

The Salina Journal reports that police Capt. Gary Hanus said in a news release that officers were dispatched Friday afternoon to a McDonald’s for a report of an unconscious person. Thirty-two-year-old Scott McMurray was transported from the scene to the Salina Regional Health Center, where he died later that night.

Witnesses said that a 29-year-old man had punched McMurray during a physical altercation, causing McMurray to fall to the pavement. The 29-year-old was questioned and booked into jail before he was released early Sunday with no charges filed.

The investigation is ongoing, and autopsy has been ordered to determine McMurray’s exact cause of death.
