(Newser) – More details are emerging about the death of Jason Green, the EMT who ignored a dying pregnant woman while on his coffee break. Green was shot in the face during a fight outside a club in SoHo, the New York Post reports. In the altercation, which was caught on video, three men attack Green, as he tries to walk away and a friend tries to break up the fight.

When all three men failed to take Green down, a fourth came and shot him. Witnesses tell police the argument began over a parking spot. Police say the incident had no connection to the pregnant woman Green and his girlfriend, fellow EMT Melisa Jackson, let die. “We have never suspected a connection there, then or now,” a police spokesman tells CNN. “We've found no connection and no relationship between the two deaths.”
