A security guard working at Fitness Connection, in Mesquite, Texas, was attacked on Saturday and died. Authorities haven’t disclosed much information about the incident. They are now trying to figure out exactly what caused the death of 43-year-old Patrick Prejean, that will be determined by a medical examiner. Prejean’s relatives are displeased because police haven’t provided them with answers. Police have said that an altercation occurred inside the Fitness Connection on Town East Boulevard, involving Prejean, who is the security guard at the location, and others in the gym. It is unclear what happened as a fight ensued, but Prejean was transported to a medical facility where he died. Family of Prejean’s stated that he had been employed at the gym since last summer.
