Police on Tuesday identified 46-year-old Jorge Flores as the man who died last week following an altercation with three security guards at Seven Mile Casino in Chula Vista.

Flores’ Jan. 17 death remained under investigation Tuesday and no arrests had been made, Lt. Dan Peak said in a news release. Police did not reveal any other details about the struggle or say if a cause of Flores’ death had been determined.

Police were notified of the altercation around 8:45 p.m. and responded to the casino on Bay Boulevard near F Street, Peak said. By the time officers arrived, Flores was unconscious and had stopped breathing.

Paramedics were already treating Flores, but he died after being taken to a hospital, Peak said.


Investigators say the events that led up to Flores’ death began two days earlier, on Jan. 15, when he allegedly assaulted security personnel at the casino. Afterward, he was “advised he was no longer welcomed at the casino, and if he returned, he would be arrested for trespassing,” Peak said in the news release.

Two nights later, he went back to the casino, but security guards recognized him and kicked him out, Peak said. He returned a short time later and allegedly assaulted security personnel while trying to get back inside.

As security guards tried to detain Flores, they tackled him to the ground and Flores lost consciousness, according to Peak, who did not disclose what kind of physical force the security staff used in trying to subdue and detain him.

The security guards involved in the incident are cooperating with the police investigation, Peak said.

Investigators are trying to track down anyone who witnessed the altercation or otherwise have information about the incident and urged them to call the Chula Vista Police Department at (619) 691-5151 or San Diego County Crime Stoppers’ anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477.
