WATERLOO, Iowa (WCCO/AP) – A man who was beaten by a mob in Waterloo late last week died of his injuries.

Police said that 19-year-old Marcellus Richard Andrews was kicked and punched by the group early Friday morning along a Waterloo street. He was taken to an Iowa City hospital, where he died Saturday.

No arrests have been made in the beating. Police say it’s unclear how many people were in the mob or why Andrews was targeted.

The WCF Courier in Iowa reports that witnesses said they heard members of the mob taunting the victim with anti-gay slurs.
