As of Monday, Quinonez was still listed in critical condition. 

Quinonez had been in the bar for a short time and became involved in a dispute and fight outside the bar, a police spokesman said.

    Well for sure someone didn't like him, or he really tee someone off. Either way, that must of been one beating.

    I would have to say that further research/ other sources are needed. If people are only commenting from WRAL source thats the only information available. For those that do seperate resarch please enlighten the rest of us with links so we might be able to post applicable comments! And, yes, we should all seek additional sources so we can make an informed comment. As of 6:30 PM Tues Nov. 15 nowhere does WRAL mention coma for the victim.

    Help me out here, if people only quote on the story, we evidently dont get the full story from WRAL.

    Quinonez was taken to WakeMed, but the extent of his injuries is unknown

    People continue to amaze me. Thanks BRWB for restoring my faith in this board.

    Monkeyboy, what WRAL did not say, and not your fault, but he is in a coma from a beating he took. No one knows for sure what happened but his injuries are life threatening.
