UPDATE, NOV. 24, 4:28 P.M.: A witness to today's incident reportedly says it happened inside a Starbucks and that a patron used a skateboard to defend himself against the man who died.

According to City News Service:

A witness told a reporter at the scene that the man, believed to be in his 50s, was acting erratically outside the Starbucks and even banged on the cafe's front window. He then walked into the store and approached a younger man who was seated at a table. The older man made a comment and then advanced aggressively toward the younger man, who quickly stood and struck the older man in the head with a skateboard, the witness said.
