BREAKING: Home of suspect in killing of elderly Jewish man at pro-Palestinian protest searched by police

The suspect of the homicide had dialed 911 himself following the alleged altercation and had a search warrant executed on his home.

The Ventura County Sheriff's office held a press conference on Tuesday following the death of David Kessler, a 69-year-old man who was killed on Sunday. Police stated that the suspect in the homicide was the individual who called 911 after Kessler suffered a head injury, and that a search warrant was executed on his home. They did not identify the suspect.

Ventura County Sheriff Jim Fryhoff began by expressing his condolences to the family and friends of the now-deceased victim. 

"On Nov. 5, 2023, at approximately 3:20 in the evening, the sheriff's communication center received multiple calls regarding a possible assault in an unconscious male who was bleeding at the intersection of Thousand Oaks Boulevard and West Lake Boulevard in the city of Thousand Oaks," Fryhoff said.

"Flyers distributed on social media indicated a demonstration for freedom for Palestine protest and the counter protest was led by we are pro Israel. There were an estimated 75 to 100 people at the demonstration between both groups."

Fryhoff said that the suspect of the homicide had dialed 911 himself, and was cooperative during the incident. He also revealed that a search warrant was executed on the suspect's home. 

The lethal hit came from blunt force trauma on the back of the head, according to chief medical examiner Chris R. Young, who also spoke during the press conference. 

The Sheriff told reporters they still do now know if a blow to the face, which was acknowledged by the chief medical examiner, caused the fall.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
