On early Sunday morning, police found an unconscious man with severe head trauma who they were unable to assist. He was pronounced dead on the scene according to a Sunday report by New York Daily News.

Authorities report that he then fell to the ground and hit his head on the pavement. He suffered severe head trauma and died on the scene.

Police are looking for three men said to be involved in the fight. A black car left the scene with three men inside and police believe they may be responsible for the victim's death.

The victim is an unidentified 46-year old man. Authorities have not released his name because they have yet to notify his family.

Two of them men involved are said to be in their twenties. A description of one man lists him as Hispanic and about 6-feet tall with short black hair and a goatee. The other man was described as being around 5-foot-9 and Caucasian with a bald head. He was said to be wearing a red and grey striped shirt.

The initial fight was said to have started inside the Drunken Monkey Bar & Grill. The fight then spilled out into the street when the victim became involved and then was killed. Detectives are checking security footage of surrounding businesses to see if they can identify those involved.

So far no arrests have been made. It is unknown if Big Ang was at the bar at the time of the fight. The Drunken Monkey has previously been the recipient of several awards in Staten Island and is hailed as a favorite watering hole. It is not normally known for violent fights such as the one that occurred on Sunday morning.
