HEEIA (HawaiiNewsNow) - A young man critically injured in a fight in Windward Oahu last week has died.

The family of 26-year-old Maka Torres gave doctors permission to take him off life support Monday morning.

Torres suffered a head injury during a brawl at the Heeia Kea Pier on Memorial Day.

The man accused of beating Torres, 28-year-old Kaipo-Aloha Gomes, turned himself in, but police declined charges saying there was "no criminal intent."
