Fight at Goldfingers ends in death
From the Queens Gazette:
A drunken strip club patron was beaten to death on January 30 after he was ejected from the club for his drunken behavior, police said. A club bouncer tossed Sammy Dejesus, 28, out of Goldfinger’s at about 11:15 p.m. on January 30. Dejesus was found unconscious by police responding to a 911 call about a beating near the club.
Dejesus, of Middle Village, was taken to Elmhurst Hospital Center, where he died of his injuries on February 2.
Police arrested Alex Rodriguez, 27, on February 2 and charged him with manslaughter and assault in Dejesus’ death. Police sources said eyewitnesses told investigators Rodriguez and Dejesus got into a verbal dispute that led to the beating.
Sources said investigators are trying to determine what led to the dispute between the two men.
