ABILENE, Texas (AP) - Abilene police are investigating the death of a man who was struck in the head with a baseball bat by his former boss as he tried to force his way into the man’s home.

Sgt. Lynn Beard told the Abilene Reporter-News (https://bit.ly/1tbIJV7 ) that 36-year-old man, who was struck on Friday, died Saturday.

Beard said the victim was an ex-employee of the resident. The two had gotten into a verbal argument, which the resident terminated and then went into his house. The victim then tried to force his way into the house.

Beard says the resident’s two children - ages 10 and 15 - were inside the home at the time of the incident.

The victim’s body has been sent for an autopsy.
