According to Officer Thomas Sweeney, a Chicago Police Department spokesman, police had been called to the Estate Ultra Bar and Yacht Club on Jan. 14 at around 2:20 a.m. to assist paramedics, the Tribune reported.

Sweeney said officers were informed Carballo was intoxicated and had fallen inside the bar, hitting his head. The news outlet then reported he was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Sweeney said that Area Central detectives determined that Carballo had suffered blunt-force trauma in a fight rather than from a fall, according to the news outlet.
