Video has emerged of an American fleeing attackers before they beat him to death last week, according to The New York Daily News.

The Daily News reported Wednesday that the footage was captured on CCTV from what appears to be a restaurant on the island of Zakynthos.

The clip shows Bakari Henderson, 22, running down a sidewalk as a mob chases him about 3:15 a.m. local time last Friday.

Henderson, a recent University of Arizona graduate, is then thrown into the back of a car by one attacker before a group of men surround and pummel him.

The beating lasts for roughly half a minute before a woman intercedes as several assailants keep striking Henderson.

Some Twitter users on Wednesday voiced sympathy for Henderson, who reportedly died at a local hospital on Zakynthos after suffering severe head injuries.

Henderson’s family reportedly said he was visiting Zakynthos for a photoshoot relating to a clothing line he planned on launching.

Greek media has since reported that Henderson and a friend then tried taking a photograph with a waitress at a local establishment called Bar Code, prompting a disagreement.

The photo purportedly angered a bouncer, sparking the fight that ultimately led to Henderson’s murder.

A friend of Henderson’s maintains, however, that the Texas native and several friends set beers at a table where two men were seated.

The gesture allegedly outraged the pair, Henderson’s friend told CBS News, leading to them smashing the bottles and waving the shards him and his cohorts.

Nine men have reportedly been charged with intentional homicide in Henderson’s death since it occurred.

The Daily News reported the suspects include a Greek bartender, a British national of Serbian origin, and eight Serbian tourists.

Five of the suspects reportedly appeared before a Zakynthos judge Wednesday, while the other four are slated to stop by court Thursday.
