LOS ANGELES (AP) - Police say a nightclub disc jockey beaten into a coma during a fight last weekend at a Hollywood hot spot has died.

Lt. Michael Ling said Tuesday that the death of Jose Silva-Nieves, known as DJ Steez, is being investigated as a possible homicide.

City News Service reports Silva-Nieves was found unconscious on the floor of the club Cashmere on Hollywood Boulevard following a brawl early Saturday.

On Sunday he was declared brain-dead at a hospital.

An online crowd-funding campaign has been established to benefit his family.
