Authorities say a man who may have been hit by a brick during an assault in Lynn, Massachusetts, has died from his injuries.

The Essex district attorney's office said two men were assaulted by two other men as they walked down Blake Street around 1:30 a.m. Sunday.

One of the victims, only identified as a 39-year-old Reading man, was taken to a Boston hospital with life-threatening injuries after apparently being hit with a brick in the attack. He died Monday morning.

The other victim was taken to a local hospital. He's expected to survive.

No one has been arrested in connection with the assault.
