What happens in Vegas can kill you in Vegas.
Luis Campos,45, was a married father of five and had traveled to Las Vegas for his brother’s bachelor party.
On Sunday night, he was waiting in line to enter a club when two strangers walked up to him and said something to the effect of, ‘What are you looking at?’ Campos didn’t get a chance to respond because the stranger punched him in the face.
The fatal altercation took place early Sunday morning outside a nightclub in the 500 block of the iconic Fremont Street, where 45-year-old Luis Campos was enjoying a night out with his younger brother.
Police responded to the scene at 1.30am after getting reports of a fight and found Campos lying unconscious on the sidewalk with what appeared to be a life-threatening head injury.
He was taken to UMC Trauma Center where he succumbed to his injuries on Thursday.
Speaking to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, one of Campos’ siblings, Drake Garibay, shed light on the circumstances surrounding the chance encounter that resulted in his brother’s death.
Garibay said he and Campos had been drinking on Sunday night but were not drunk when they got in line to enter Vanguard Lounge.
The pair were in town for their sibling’s bachelor party ahead of his wedding, in which Campos was supposed to be the best man.
The pair were standing quietly next to a wall when two strangers walked up to Campos, according to Garibay, and the taller of the pair confronted the father-of-five, telling him something to the effect of, ‘What are you looking at?’ ‘
Garibay, 30, said a second later, the man sucker-punched his brother in the face, causing him to collapse unconscious to the ground amidst a dense crowd of revelers.
