Richmond County investigators are looking into the death of a man after a fight with his father this afternoon on Chafee Avenue, near downtown.

28-year-old Dennis James Murray, Jr. died this afternoon at his home. Investigators are interviewing his father, Dennis Murray, Sr., and trying to decide whether to charge him with his son's death.

Investigators say the two started fighting shortly after lunch. The first fight was over money and involved a knife. Hours later, a second fight started in back bedroom. During that fight, the son started having trouble breathing. He was taken to MCG, where he was declared dead.

Dennis Murray, Jr. had congestive heart failure. Investigators are trying to decide whether the fight exacerbated the heart problem that caused his death.
