A man is dead after a fight broke out Wednesday evening at a gas station on South Temple.
Salt Lake City police are investigating the death, which was reported shortly after 7 p.m., according to police Lt. James Nelson. The fight took place between two customers at Smith's Express, a convenience store at 873 E. South Temple.
Nelson said Wednesday night that two men, who apparently didn't know each other, began arguing inside the store. The argument escalated into a physical confrontation that apparently was started by the victim, a 62-year-old man. The other man, 53, elbowed the victim in the head. The victim then left the store and got into a maroon-colored Toyota Corolla, where he collapsed and died a few minutes later.
