Two Black Teens Suspected in the Death of WWII Veteran Who Looks Just Like Obama’s Grandfather

An 88-year-old veteran of World War II who was injured at the Battle of Okinawa has died of injures after being outside his lodge in in Spokane, Wash., apparently by two teenagers.

Delbert Belton, known as “Shorty,” died Thursday from head injuries suffered in the attack Wednesday night outside the Eagles Lodge.

Police say they received a call about an assault and found the victim sitting in his car.

KXLY-TV quotes witnesses as saying two black male suspects attacked Belton as he was about to head inside the lodge to play pool.

Police, who have examined surveillance footage, say they are looking for two possible suspects between the ages of 16 and 19. . .
