The two went outside, where Lee was "repeatedly pummeled … with fists and elbow causing severe blunt head trauma," according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Ajani Salim Fisher, a 33-year-old black man, has been arrested and charged with Lee's murder. Lait said that the motive did not appear to be robbery and that Lee apparently did nothing to provoke the attack.

Lait declined to give any specific information about the argument between the two but said they had no prior relationship. The attack happened about 1:45 p.m. and Lee was pronounced dead at 8:50 p.m., according to coroner's records.
