Sunset Park Man Dies After Fight With Coworker

SUNSET PARK – An argument between two coworkers turned violent, then deadly, this week after a Brooklyn man succumbed to injuries sustained in a fight on Monday.

In the early evening of Monday, September 24, police responded to a 911 call of an assault in progress at 140 58th Street, in Sunset Park’s Brooklyn Army Terminal.

Two coworkers, Brian Trinidad, 27, and Luis Solano, 33, had been arguing when their verbal altercation escalated into a physical one, police said. As the two scuffled, Solano punched Trinidad in the face, knocking him to the ground, where he hit his head on the pavement.

Police said Solano continued to assault Trinidad once he was on the ground before fleeing up 58th Street.

Responding EMS rushed Trinidad, who had suffered trauma to his head, down the street to NYU Langone. Two days later, on Wednesday, September 26, the Sunset Park resident succumbed to his injuries and died.

The same day, police arrested Solano, who lives in Hamilton Heights, and charged him with manslaughter and assault.

  1. This story is more incomplete than it is incorrect. This was more than a fight. It was a brutal assault which left Bryan with multiple injuries which led to his death. If you the readers of this inaccurate published report knew the exact injuries our beloved Bryan sustained… you would then be able to determine and come to a conclusion that this man did more than hit Bryan, he continued to pummel Bryan even as he went into a seizure. He basically murdered my nephew. It wasn’t enough that you knocked him out in a fight but you continued to brutally pummel his head and body as he sustain not only head injuries but also neck and rib injuries which all contributed to his death. You did so while he played there unconscious.Your a murderer and you should be grateful that NY’s Finest apprehended you for you would have suffered a slow and agonizing just by my hands. Our family knows from what the doctors have told us about Bryans injuries that he basically was murdered in the most cowardly way. RIP Bryan. Your family and friends so painfully miss.amd live you. We miss you so much. We will forever remember you and love you for the kind young man you were. May God welcome you by his side. I Love you nephew.
