An investigation is underway into the death of a man who suffered ultimately fatal injuries prior to an altercation between family members at a Thermal home, a sheriff's sergeant said Tuesday.
Sheriff's deputies who responded at 7:27 a.m. Monday to a family disturbance call at a home in the 65000 block of Harrison Street found a 35-year-old man being restrained by family members, Sgt. Ben Ramirez said.
Medical personnel were summoned to the scene and took the man to a hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries he sustained ``prior to the family altercation,'' the sergeant said. The man, whose name was withheld, died sometime Monday at the hospital, he said.
