Ascaridis lived in the area and approached the suspects because they were loud on the lakeshore around 1 a.m., police said.

The verbal altercation turned violent and ended with injuries to all three, police said.

Authorities found a semi-automatic pistol with no serial number while searching Caban’s home. The firearm discovered was not the weapon used in the death of Ascaridis, police added.
