HONOLULU (Hawaii News Now)- Police have filed murder charges in the case of a Schofield Army ranger beaten to death at a Los Angeles night club.

First Lieutenant Albert Song, just 24 years old, was celebrating a friend's wedding when he apparently tried to break up a fight. It cost him his life.

Albert Song's spunk comes through loud and clear in a touching online tribute that chronicles a life tragically cut short.

In one clip from his youth, Song prays for "peace in our world." The Honolulu-based 1st lieutenant who prayed for peace as a young boy was killed in a random attack at a Los Angeles nightclub on June 2nd.

The California native was celebrating on the dance floor of the new Icon Ultra Lounge when several men punched, kicked, and knocked him unconscious. He died the next day of a massive brain hemorrhage.

The West Point graduate had just completed Army Ranger training. According to West Point's website, Song was trying to break up a fight when he was attacked.

It's no surprise to those who knew Song, a 24 year old who showed poise and character beyond his years as a young Boy Scout.

Song is survived by his mom and sister. His Roma, or mom wrote a poem, thanking Albert for "living such a wonderful life, saying until we meet again in heaven, enjoy your time with your Dad. Goodbye, my son. I love you! From your mother, who has no choice but to let you go."

First Lieutenant Song had just joined the "Wolfhounds", Schofield's 2nd battalion, 27th infantry after earning his Ranger tab.

Los Angeles police are still looking for another man involved in his murder.
