LEWISTON, Maine — Leaders among the immigrant community in Lewiston said over the weekend violence has no place in the city after a local man died from injuries suffered in a brawl.

Donald Giusti, 38, died Friday afternoon in Central Maine Medical Center from injuries he received during a massive brawl Tuesday night, according to the Maine State Police. The incident at Kennedy Park has sparked concerns in Lewiston along with plans from police to increase patrols in the area.
