Security Guard DIE ON TikTok. . . Go to Viral. . . Fans Say Killing Is ‘Self Defense’
A security guard in Texas was beaten to death in a new video that went viral on TikTok, MTO News has reported. The circumstances surrounding his murder are causing quite a bit of controversy on social networks. Some say the men beat the security guard to death – however, they were acting in self-defense.
The security guard worked at Fitness Connection, a gym in Mesquite Texas – and ultimately died when police say he was assaulted while performing his job.
Patrick Prejean, 43, was involved in a physical scuffle on Saturday. Investigators say the conflict took place between Prejean, a security guard there, and others in the exercise area.
A video of the “attack” is circulating – and it shows Patrick trying to throw 3 men out of the gym. The men, as MTO News observed, were playing basketball and were asked to leave the premises.
In the video, the three men appear to have left peacefully, as Patrick puts his hand on one of the men and pushes him. That’s when – as MTO News has observed – things go sideways.
The three men then knocked Patrick to the ground, punching him as he lay on the ground.
What do you think – is this self-defense? That seems to be the prevailing view on social media:
