ST. LOUIS – Police in St. Louis say they’ve arrested two juveniles and are seeking two other suspects after a Florida man was beaten to death with hammers.
Police say 32-year-old Zemir Begic of Miami was in his car about 1:15 a.m. Sunday when several young people approached and began damaging it. He suffered injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth in the attack and was pronounced dead at a hospital.
About 50 people briefly blocked an intersection Sunday night to protest the killing of Begic, a Bosnian man who moved to St. Louis this year.
The Post-Dispatch reports St. Louis police Chief Sam Dotson spoke with residents during the street protest. He said the killing did not appear to be motivated by race or ethnicity. A motive hasn’t been released.
