A 28-year-old Illinois man is in critical condition and fighting for his life after he was struck in the head with a bowling ball during an altercation at a bowling alley last week in an attack that immediately went viral.

According to Chicago ABC affiliate WLS-TV, Diamante Williams was at the Town Hall Bowl in Cicero, Illinois on Wednesday night when a fight broke out during a promotional event at the bowling alley.

The article goes on to state the following:

In the footage posted to Facebook on September 6 by Darnell Collins, security guards were trying to stop the brawl between a group of people when a man can be seen raising a bowling ball into the air and then smashing it down on Williams’ head.

People can then be heard screaming and shouting before running away from the scene of the crime.

“It is horrific,” said Tamekio, Williams, Diamante’s mother. “I just couldn’t believe somebody could be that inhumane to do that to another human being.”

The Cicero Police Department released a CCTV image of the suspect they are trying to identify who as the man allegedly involved in the horrific attack.
