The 55-year-old man died yesterday in the garage of a friend's home in the 6200 block of Oakham near Croquet Street.
Police say the body was found a day after the man had been attacked in the 4600 block of Jorns.
The victim's name has not been released, but his family describes him as a man who loved to cook and go fishing.
"What happened to my brother was senseless," said the victim's sister, Cynthia Jenkins. "It was uncalled for, and the thing that I am glad about is that they do have the people that did it to him in custody, because he did not deserve that."
Police say three men have been arrested in the case. We're waiting on more information on the charges they will face.
