The man fell and hit his head during clashes between pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian rallies. The local medical examiner’s office classified his death as a homicide, but no arrests have been made yet.
A suspect has been identified, a 50-year-old man who attended the pro-Palestinian rally, but his name has not been disclosed. The authorities detained him briefly for questioning and searched his home before releasing him.
