A Kenyan man has died after being assaulted in Dallas, TX.

Bryan Okemwa Gitenya was struck by an American man, Xavien Deavonni Griffin during an argument which occurred on Royal Lane on Monday morning.

The incident occurred as scores of Kenyans swarmed Dallas from all over the US to celebrate the annual memorial weekend celebrations.

Gitenya had arrived in Dallas on Friday from St Paul, Minnesota where he lives and was looking forward to the festivities.

Gitenya had reportedly attended one of the many parties attended by Kenyans and was attacked right around 5.45am.

Gitenya and Griffin were involved in an argument when the assailant hit Gikenya using his hand and causing him to fall and hit his head on the concrete. He was knocked unconscious and was transported to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas where a doctor diagnosed him with severe brain injuries.

A witness who was present during the incident was able to identify Griffin from a six man line up.

Griffin is in jail and is on a $150,000 bond.
