LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Medical examiners identified a man who died after being punched just once in the face outside of a Fremont Street bar over the weekend.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the victim as Luis Campos, 45, of La Puente, California. His cause and manner of death remained pending.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, officers were called to the 500 block of Fremont Street early Sunday morning to find an unconscious man on the sidewalk, suffering from a head injury. He was taken to University Medical Center with a life-threatening injury, police said.

According to police, he had been standing in line to enter a bar when he was approached by two males. An argument began and a suspect punched the victim. Both males then ran away.

On Thursday, the victim died from his injuries. Police said the suspects ran east on Fremont Street and turned left on Sixth Street. 

"We're all close brothers, but this was one of the first times we got to really hang out together," his brother, Travis Garibay, said. "He's married and everything like that. He's busy with kids."

"He was funny, he was loving he was kind," his mother Joyce Garibay said. "Even if he was broke, he always had a gift for me for Mother's Day or my birthday. That's just the man he was."

Police released video of the suspects escaping the scene. Anyone with information the suspects or this case is asked to contact police at 702-828-3521.

"The bottom line is that guy murdered my son," Joyce Garibay cried. "He was a husband, a father to five kids and he was my best friend."
