Random attack kills WWI vet in Spokane, suspect sought
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Delbert Belton survived the battle of Okinawa, but he lost his life this week in the parking lot of an Eagles Lodge in north Spokane.
Spokane police were still looking for one of two teens suspected in the beating death of the 88-year-old World War II veteran.
Police believe the two 16-year-old boys approached Belton in his car at random Wednesday night outside an Eagles Lodge as he was waiting for a friend.
