SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Northern California authorities say a 31-year-old man is dead following an altercation at a heavily attended music festival.

The Sacramento Bee (https://bit.ly/1Oxcs6O ) reports that Sacramento police are treating Sunday’s death as a homicide. The name of the victim was not released.

Police and fire were already at Discovery Park to investigate a midafternoon fire that reportedly started when a deep-fryer ignited propane tanks at a vendor booth. Several people were hurt, sustaining burns or other injuries in trying to escape the fire.

Later, some concert-goers approached authorities to say that a man who had been assaulted appeared to be unconscious.

Medics found the man unresponsive. He later died at a hospital.

Some eyewitnesses said the victim was punched by a male suspect. Police are searching for the suspect.
