Massachusetts Man ID'd As Victim In One-Punch Las Vegas Slaying

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities identified a 57-year-old Massachusetts man killed during the weekend in a single punch pre-dawn confrontation with another man on a Las Vegas Strip pedestrian walkway.

The Clark County coroner said Monday that Thomas Driscoll of Chicopee died early Sunday at a Las Vegas hospital of head and neck injuries. His death was ruled a homicide.
