A bouncer faces third-degree murder charges for fatally beating a man outside a Philadelphia, PA nightclub on April 16, according to NBC10.
Kenneth Frye, 24, has been identified as the security guard who hit 41-year-old Eric Pope outside the Tabu Lounge & Sports Bar on the 200 block of South 12th Street.
Police are still looking for Frye as police said he should surrender or be taken into custody on Wednesday.
Pope was escorted out of the Center City nightclub because he was drunk just before he was fatally shot by the bouncer, according to police.
Footage shows Pope standing in the street after being kicked out of the club as Frye approaches and then knocks him to the ground unconscious.
After the beating, the victim was taken to the hospital, where he eventually succumbed to his injuries.
What led to the 41-year-old man’s fatal blow is unknown and under investigation.
Tabu Lounge & Sports Bar said Frye is not an actual employee of theirs but has a contract and works for a private security company.
The incident follows a series of reports by security forces in Center City. According to WPVI-TV, on March 27, police beat up a complainant and fractured his hyoid bone, police said.
On April 3, an applicant suffered a serious head injury after security slammed his head on the ground.
