Man who died after South City bar bell attack at gym identified

A man who was attacked at a South San Francisco gym with a steel bar on Wednesday and later died of his injuries has been identified today by the San Mateo County coroner's office as 43-year-old San Bruno resident Diego Galindo.

Officers responded to a report of an assault at a gym in the 100 block of El Camino Real on Wednesday around 9:30 p.m., police said.

Police identified the suspect in the fatal attack as 46-year-old South San Francisco resident Kenneth Osako.

Osako allegedly struck Galindo in the head with a steel bar used to hold weights multiple times, dropped the bar and fled, according to police.

Both men were members at the gym, police said.

Galindo was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Thursday, police said.

Officers found Osako on Thursday morning with the assistance of a special agent from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, police said.

Osako, a plumber, was booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of murder.
