Punch knocks man unconscious into street, hit and killed by car

- A fight outside of a liquor store turned deadly when one of the men was knocked unconscious into the street. That's when he was immediately struck by a car passing by.

The fight happened at the liquor store at the corner of John R Street and Winchester Avenue.

"[The fight] was on the sidewalk. A punch was thrown and then a person fell into the street and was immediately hit by an SUV," says Lt. Michael Nied with the Detroit Police.

Both the vehicle's driver and the other person involved in the fight stayed at the scene. The man involved in the fight was arrested.

The victim's name has not yet been released, as family is still being notified. We're told, though, that he is a man in his 50s. We're told the other man involved in the fight is in his 40s.

"It's pretty tragic circumstances. A fight, unintended, evidentally, to end in a death," Nied says.

Detroit police were not sure what started the fight.
