An elderly Jewish man attending a pro-Israel rally in California has died after a “physical altercation” with a pro-Palestinian protester, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department announced on Monday evening.

Deputies responded to reports of a battery at a demonstration on Westlake and Thousand Oaks Boulevards after a verbal altercation broke out between 69-year-old Paul Kessler and an unnamed protester on Sunday afternoon, per a department press release.

“Witness accounts indicated that Kessler was involved in a physical altercation with [pro-Palestinian] counterprotesters,” the release continued. “During the altercation, Kessler fell backwards and struck his head on the ground.”

The department said it is continuing to investigate the incident and the “possibility of a hate crime” has not been ruled out.
