Conrad of the Murrieta Police Department.

"(The man) was knocking on doors as he walked up and down Candy Apple," Conrad said. "This commotion caused a resident to come outside and investigate. A physical altercation ensued between the curious resident and the unknown male." The suspect and one of the residents were transported to the hospital, where the suspect was pronounced dead. The resident was treated and released, Conrad said.

He said police are investigating the circumstances surrounding Norman's death, and no arrests have been made. More information will be released following autopsy results, he said.

"died about an hour later at Inland Valley Medical Center" I wouldn't be caught dead in the local hospital monopoly.

Very strange and sad story :/ If no one knew him in the neighborhood he was knocking on door, he must have been lost due to drugs or mental impairment.
Cant figure out how a 21 yr old would die unless the guys who got him were beating the holy heck out of him. Which if he didnt have a weapon sure didnt require that to subdue him.

Keep us updated on this one

Someone lost a loved one during the holidays. Hopefully this gets investigated. This guy was very young to have passed away like that.
