Man charged with murder in Gaslamp attack

Posted: Updated:

 SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 23-year-old man already jailed on an unrelated charge was re-arrested Thursday on suspicion of taking part in an assault that killed a Chula Vista resident last month during a weekend dispute in the Gaslamp District.

Mahad A. Ahmed of San Diego was expected to face a murder charge over the death of Michael Beaver, 25, according to police.

About 1 a.m. June 15, Beaver got into a dispute with a group of men and women for unknown reasons in the 500 block of F Street, homicide Lt. Mike Hastings said.

After exchanging hostile words with Beaver, three of the others -- two men and a woman -- pummeled him in the upper body. They then walked off along with another woman, leaving Beaver unconscious on the sidewalk.

Medics took Beaver to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

Surveillance cameras captured images of the assailants.

Roughly five hours after the deadly confrontation, Ahmed was booked on suspicion of a parole violation, according to jail records.

No other arrests in the case have been announced.

    Call it the green-eyed monster. A new study being done at UC San Diego suggests that jealous isn't just a human emotion – it extends to our four-legged friends as well.
