They say Gainer then dragged the victim into the parking lot, where he continued to kick the victim until officers arrived.

“This was apparently a very long assault and it happened over about a 15-minute time span, so he was obviously beat up bad enough to kill him,” said Sergeant Brandon Watkins.

The victim’s name has not been released.
