American Bakari Henderson, 22, died after he sustained injuries during a beating while vacationing on a Greek Island of Zakynthos.
According to reports, early Friday morning, 10 people beat Henderson to death over a “minor” argument.
Henderson, a University of Arizona student, had a disagreement with a security guard inside a bar, according to reports. The argument escalated and moved outside.
Henderson’s attackers are thought to have used brass knuckles as they battered his head in.
Reportedly, Laganas police have charged two people with homicide in the case, a 32-year-old British security guard of Serbian origin and a Greek barman, 34.
Henderson was from Austin, Texas and was studying business finance and entrepreneurship.
Police are investigating whether race played any part in the attack on Henderson, who is black.
