Update 08/01/2021 2:22pm:

Previously, it was reported that skateboarder Terry Kennedy was arrested on multiple

charges, including threatening to murder police officers. The cops were initially

responding to a call related to battery that went down in a hotel in Illinois. Now, it has

been reported that the man Kennedy allegedly attacked—Josiah Kassahun, has died.

The 23-year-old reportedly suffered a fractured skull and concussion, which was

confirmed by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. As a result of the fatal injuries,

Kennedy may now be facing a murder or manslaughter charge if prosecutors consider

adding either. As of now, Kennedy’s bail was set at $100,000 during a hearing that went

Skateboarding star Terry Kennedy was arrested Tuesday on multiple charges, including

threatening to murder police officers.

Cops responded to a call regarding a battery that took place at a motel in Oakbrook

Terrace, Illinois. Kennedy was accused of attacking a male victim and leaving him with a

concussion and fractured skull before fleeing the scene.

After law enforcement tracked down and apprehended Kennedy, police claim he became

aggressive during the booking process. The skateboarder allegedly threatened to murder

cops nine times during the incident and said, “I will kill one of you police. We kill police

where I’m from.”

Terry Kennedy was eventually booked on aggravated battery in a public place and

threatening a public official. He was also charged with violating his bail bond as he was

out on bail after an arrest earlier this month.

The 36-year-old remains behind bars although his bail was set at $100,000. His next

court date is scheduled for late August.
