A man involved in a fight Thursday night at Modern Woodmen Park died of his injuries Friday, and an investigation is underway, Davenport Police Capt. Dale Sievert said. 

Sievert said that at 10:02 p.m., officers were dispatched to Modern Woodmen Park regarding a disturbance and that a subject was on the ground and bleeding from the head. The victim was taken to Genesis Medical Center-East Rusholme Street, Davenport, for treatment.

On Friday, the victim was taken to University Hospitals, Iowa City, where he died, Sievert said. The name of the victim was not released Friday night. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

During the preliminary stages of the investigation, Joseph Howard VanHecke, 50, was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct by fighting. He was released from the Scott County Jail after posting a $300 cash bond.
