A Texas security guard was beaten to death in a new video that's widely circulating on TikTok, MTO News has learned. The circumstances surrounding his killing is causing quite the debate on social media. Some are saying that the men who beat the security guard to death - were operating in self defense however.
The security guard worked at the Fitness Connection, a gym in Mesquite Texas - and ended up dead when police say he was attacked while doing his job.
43-year-old Patrick Prejean was involved in a physical altercation on Saturday. Investigators say the altercation was between Prejean, who was a security guard there, and others in the gym area.
A video of the "attack" is circulating - and it shows Patrick attempting the throw out 3 men from the gym. The men, as MTO News observed, were playing basketball and were asked to leave the establishment.
In the video, the three men appear to have been leaving peacefully, when Patrick put his hands on one of the men and pushed him. That's when - as MTO News observed - things went left.
The three men then shocked Patrick down, and punched and kicked him as he lay on the ground.
What do you think - is this self defense? That seems to be the popular opinion on social media:
