Man Dies After Late Night Altercation

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

A Billings man died at St. Vincent Healthcare Wednesday morning, after being assaulted.

According to the Billings Police Department, 50 year old Raynard Johnson died from head injuries he received during an altercation that occurred Saturday, September 14th.

KULR 8's Kyle Benton spoke this afternoon with Johnson's best friend who said he picked Johnson up from Cadillac Jax on Saturday night and dropped him off on the corner of South 29th Street and 4th Avenue South.

"I let him out on the corner. I didn't know that was where he was staying at the time but that was right where he stayed. So Sunday I just tried to call him all day, tried to check up on him because we usually try to keep in touch anyway every day.  I couldn't get in touch with him, so I just did what I was going to do and went on to bed and then his girlfriend come Monday morning by my job and told me what had happened," said Johnson's friend, Darryl Hamilton.

The BPD tells us they have located the person involved in the altercation and he is cooperating in the investigation. No charges have been been filed as of now and detectives are still investigating.
