According to Missoula Elks Lodge employees, an alleged fight occurred outside their establishment during the Planet Of The Apes Tour last Saturday resulting in the death of a 40 year old Spokane man. Brock Eggelston, event manager at the Elks says that police are still gathering evidence to pinpoint exactly how it happened and who was involved. Their next step will be to review the Elks security cameras for clues and interview people possibly related to the situation.
Clayton DeVoe, Exalted Ruler for the Elks Lodge said the man was not served alcohol that night in his establishment and was refused service by their bartender because he was drinking earlier in the evening elsewhere. After the next days security briefing, DeVoe learned that the situation stemmed "over a girl" and the rumored fight happened so fast that no one was able to witness exactly how it occurred. The victim reportedly struck his head on the concrete outside the club around 12:10 AM and suffered major head trauma. He was pronounced dead by the AP Newswire today at 11:01am.
