WAUWATOSA — A 60-year-old man has died, and a 47-year-old man is in custody after officials say they were involved in an altercation at Wilson Park on Sunday.

Elias Gonzalez, 60, died at the hospital a day after the incident, according to a report from the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office.

Very few details have been released, but a spokesperson with the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office said a 47-year-old man has been arrested in connection to the incident.

The sheriff's office said Gonzalez and the suspect got into an altercation around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, resulting in Gonzalez being assaulted and losing consciousness. He was taken to a local hospital where he died the next day.

The man taken into custody was initially arrested for aggravated assault causing great bodily harm, but that has since been upgraded to 2nd-degree reckless homicide.
