Man Assaulted
Near D.C. Gay Bar Dies From Injuries

Tony Randolph Hunter, a gay man assaulted near a Washington, D.C., gay bar on September 7, has died from his injuries.

A gay man assaulted near a Washington, D.C., gay bar on September 7 has died from his injuries. Tony Randolph Hunter, 27, of Clinton, Md., passed away Wednesday after being knocked unconscious by four assailants 10 days earlier while a block from popular gay watering hole Be Bar. Police have been investigating the incident as a possible antigay hate crime, given the attack's proximity to a known gay establishment. The suspects, described by a friend who was with Hunter at the time as four young black men, have yet to be apprehended. Upon Hunter's death, D.C. police appealed for help in identifying the attackers.

Hunter and his friend Trevor Carter were exiting their car near Be Bar, located at Eighth and N streets in the northwest quadrant of the city, on a Sunday evening when they were jumped by the suspects. Carter was able to escape and sought help, but Hunter never recovered. (The Advocate)
