OKLAHOMA CITY Police in Oklahoma City say they've identified the victim in a weekend killing.

Authorities say a man was found lying in a street at Northwest 10th Street and Indiana Avenue late Friday night. The man, identified Wednesday as 55-year-old Kenneth Joe Barger, was unresponsive and taken to an Oklahoma City hospital.

Witnesses told police that Barger had been in a fight with another person who left the scene before officers arrived.

Authorities say they were notified Sunday that Barger had died from his injuries. The case is being investigated as a homicide but no arrests have been made.
