The man who was beaten in a brawl over a Bronx fender-bender Sunday has died of his injuries — and his suspected attackers are expected to face upgraded charges, cops said.
Gueris Guillermo, 42, and his 38-year-old brother were in an accident around 2:40 a.m. Sunday at Carter Avenue and East 176th Street in Mount Hope when the occupants of the other vehicle got out and attacked the pair, authorities said.
Guillermo suffered severe head trauma and was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he died Tuesday, authorities said.
His brother was taken to Lincoln Medical Center with lacerations to his face, according to the NYPD.
Two suspects in the beat-down, Thomas Ellington, 29, and Luciano Norales, 27, were arrested at the scene, cops said. Both men were charged with attempted robbery, gang assault and assault, cops said.
After Guillermo died, the case was ruled a homicide — and cops said Ellington and Norales will face upgraded charges because of it.
Police are still searching for three to five more men in connection with the deadly beating, authorities said.
