SARASOTA, Fla. — A reward is being offered for information in the beating death of a Sarasota restaurant manager.

Andrew Tian was severely beaten after confronting three men who skipped out on their $30 check at the New Dynasty Chinese Restaurant. He was found in the driveway of a nearby business and transported to the hospital, where he underwent surgery. Tian died Friday.

They are described as three men in their 20s with short hair, between 5-feet-8-inches and 6-feet tall and between 210 and 250 pounds. One has a pierced lip and eyebrow. Another has a rosary tattoo on his wrist and hand.

Anyone with information can call 941-366-8477.

A celebration of Andrew Tian’s life will be taking place on July 28 at 3pm. It well be held at the First Congregational United Church of Christ located at 1031 S. Euclid Avenue in Sarasota.

    Once again the small executive editorial minds at ABC 7 have failed to give the full description the police put out of the 3 MURDER suspects still walking amongst us. The POLICE and crime stoppers have repeatedly stated the 3 KILLERS are "Hispanic." This is important information the police have put out AND ABC 7 HAS REMOVED FROM THE DESCRIPTION. Yet if you look at ABC 7's post which preceded this announcement 30 minutes earlier regarding an attempted robbery at an adult store, you will see they kept in the description of the suspect as a "WHITE" male. What is the argument ABC 7 has here for posting the FULL description for one suspect and not the other. (Reference my opening description of the executive minds at ABC 7 above.) Can anyone from ABC 7 answer this?
