MEXICO CITY (AP) -- A friend says the grandson of political activist Malcolm X died after he was beaten up during a dispute over a bill at a Mexico City bar.
Labor activist Miguel Suarez tells The Associated Press that Malcolm Shabazz died of his injuries at a hospital.
Suarez says the 28-year-old Shabazz had gone with him and several other people to a bar near the plaza that is home to Mexico City's mariachis.
He said Friday the owner demanded they pay a $1,200 and a fight ensured. Suarez says he later found Shabazz injured outside the bar and took him to a hospital where he died on Thursday.
U.S. officials earlier confirmed Shabazz's death.
