JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A man beaten and robbed at a Jackson restaurant has died of his injuries.

Jackson Police Department spokeswoman Colendula Green says Eric Hambrick had been assaulted Thursday night at a Waffle House. He was found in the parking lot the restaurant about 9:30 p.m.

Hambrick died Saturday at the University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Green says police are piecing the case together. She says police are going over video surveillance footage and hopefully officials will release suspect descriptions in coming days.

Hambrick worked with the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency for about three years and was a 20-year employee of the state.

Hambrick also sang at area churches, in local theater productions and with the Mississippi Opera.
