A Marine was allegedly involved in the death of Emerson student Daniel Hollis, the U.S. Marine Corps confirmed.

Hollis suffered a head injury after an “altercation” in Allston-Brighton on September 28. He was left with irreparable brain damage and later died of his injuries.

The USMC released a statement Tuesday, the Boston Globe reported, acknowledging a Marine on leave may have been involved in Hollis’s death.

“We are deeply saddened to learn that an off-base incident allegedly involving one of our Marines has led to the passing of a man in the Boston community,” the statement read. “The event occurred during an approved leave period for the Marine, in the early hours of September 28, 2019. This is a tragic event and is being treated with great care and solemnity on the part of the command.”
