56-year-old man pronounced dead near Hilltop Mall bank Tuesday night

23rd Street fight turns fatal

Authorities are investigating what led to the death of a man who was found with a head injury near the Mechanics Bank at 3170 Hilltop Mall Road Tuesday night.

Officers were called to the bank site at 9:22 p.m. on a report that a man was extremely intoxicated.

The 56-year-old man, identified as Stephen Uhrick of Newark, Delaware, was found unresponsive and paramedics pronounced him dead at the scene, police spokesperson Sgt. Nicole Abetkov said.

A preliminary investigation did not suggest foul play had occurred, Abetkov said. He may have fallen and hit his head, but an autopsy scheduled Thursday will hopefully explain what occurred, she said.
