June 27, 2019

WILSON, Pa. (AP) — A fight between two residents at a Pennsylvania apartment complex ended with one man dead and the other being sought by authorities.

Wilson police say 28-year-old Dennis Hodge Jr. and another man were arguing in the parking lot of the P&J Apartments when the fight broke out around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday. Hodge was punched once in the head, causing him to fall down and hit his head on the pavement.

Police found Hodge unconscious and bleeding from the head. He was taken to a hospital but died there a short time later.

Authorities say the other man drove away after the fight and remained at large Thursday. Authorities have not released his name, but they say the two men knew each other.

Authorities haven’t said why the men were arguing.
