48-Year-Old Man Found Dead in Brooklyn

A 69-year-old man who was also injured is being questioned in the case, authorities say

A 48-year-old man is dead after suffering head trauma in Brooklyn, and police are questioning a 69-year-old man who was also taken to the hospitals with injuries. 

Police initially responded to a 911 call for an assault in progress at an apartment on Union Street at some point Sunday. They found the victim, identified as Rodolfo Rofa of Virginia, with head trauma. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The 69-year-old man now being questioned by police was taken to the same hospitals with unspecified injuries, though his were not thought to be life-threatening. 

No charges have been filed, but police said Monday they were investigating the case as a homicide.
