Autopsy finds guard sustained brain damage

A SECURITY guard who died after a fight over a car-parking space in Zhabei District suffered brain damage due to excessive force, according to an autopsy report released yesterday.

The report has been handed to prosecutors.

The suspect in the case, Wang Yigang, has been detained by Zhabei police.

Family members of the guard, Ding Houyi, said they were in talks with the police about a settlement.

"Many people expressed their willingness to help my brother's family out," Ding Houfa, the guard's elder brother told Shanghai Daily.

"But we are not going to receive donations at the moment since we are still waiting for a compensation result," he said.

On June 10, the 52-year-old residential community guard got into a fight with Wang, a property owner, after he asked Wang not to park his car on an area of greenery.

Ding was allegedly pushed to the ground and hit his head on a concrete curb. He died two days later.

Liu Houqing, property manager of the community where Ding worked, told Shanghai Daily that Wang's wife hadn't shown up in the neighborhood after the incident.

But she was quoted by a local newspaper as saying that Ding had grabbed her husband's neck first and that caused her husband to push him away. She said her husband was "extremely regretful for his behavior" and she was willing to compensate Ding's family.
