Source: CNN

(CNN) — Las Vegas police arrested a suspect they said goaded a homeless man into doing a backflip that led to a fatal injury.

Keonte Jones, 28, was arrested this week. The incident happened on June 20 after Larry Coner, 55, approached the suspect asking for money.

Jones told him he’d pay him $6 to perform a backflip and on Coner’s third attempt, he landed on his neck and was left to die while bystanders watched and laughed, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement.

Jones was livestreaming the entire incident on Facebook, police said. Medical personnel were called and the victim was transported to the hospital with a serious spinal injury. He died 10 days later, police said.
