SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 23 (UPI) -- A juvenile has been arrested in the beating death of an 88-year-old World War II veteran, police in Spokane, Wash., said Friday.
He has been charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree murder, CNN reported.
Police said Delbert Belton was found beaten outside an Eagles Lodge Wednesday. The attackers were described as black males, ages 16-19, both wearing black clothing, The (Spokane) Spokesman-Review reported Thursday.
Belton, called "Shorty," by friends, fought in the Battle of Okinawa in 1945, friend Ted Denison said.
"He was a tough old bird, I'll tell you that," he said.
Police said in a release they responded to a call of an assault at the Eagles Lodge Wednesday night. When they arrived, they found Belton in his car with serious head wounds. He was taken to an area hospital where he died Thursday.
Belton was waiting at the Eagle Lodge for a female friend because he didn't want her to enter the club alone, said Lillian Duncan, another longtime friend.
"He was so awesome," she said. "Anybody that didn't get to know him missed out on a wonderful angel in their life."

If Obama had a son, he would look like Delbert Belton.
Yes, they need to be put down. Unfortunately, there are not enough men left to insure the scales are balanced for the taking of this eighty nine year old veteran’s life.
This nation is becoming a nation of wimps. Go to the local mall or grocery store or Starbucks and look at the “men”. It is difficult to tell the difference between men and women much of the time.
That is the face of alienation, ignorance and hatred. Those three are a powerful tool fo the Evil One (not Obama) - Satan.
The attackers were described as black males, ages 16-19, both wearing black clothing,and looking like Obama’s sons.
“One shot to the back of the head.”
Too expensive. Rope can be used over and over again.
He was a tough old bird, I’ll tell you that,” ..................................... A war Vet not packing is an easy victim for the street wolves. Most of the older guys around me wouldn’t put up with any of that Sh!+, mess with them and they may end up as a street carcass.
You look at that face and you just know he's been told his whole life that he's a victim.
If Obama had a grandfather he would look like Delbert Belton. iow white...
If Soetoro had two sons...
Shoot them in the gut and make them suffer.
Mr. Belton is the victim not the perp.
If Mooshell had a brother he would look like him.
Oops, my bad.
That is one of the ugliest faces Ive seen in awhile.
...in just the past few days on this site I’ve seen numerous far uglier than that one...
Where's the universal national outrage?
Race relations are probably at their lowest point since the '60's, and are only a flash point or two away from getting really ugly.
Yet the lead story in the MSM is Ben Affleck playing Batman.
