Coroner IDs Security Guard Dead After Fight

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities have identified a Las Vegas security guard who went unconscious and died last week following a fight with another man.

Clark County coroner's officials say 59-year-old Las Vegas resident Donald Harris died after the altercation about 2 a.m. Friday morning. Authorities haven't determined an official cause.

Police say they responded to reports of a fight on Bridger Avenue in downtown Las Vegas. They say emergency workers were trying to revive the guard when officers arrived.

Harris was later pronounced dead at Valley Hospital.

Police say Harris had been fighting with 29-year-old Blake Valbracht when he fell to the ground and became unresponsive.

Valbracht surrendered to officers and has been booked in the Clark County jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.
