SAN ANTONIO, Texas (CBS Houston) – A man was beaten to death in front of a crowd of people at an Amtrak Station Thursday.

San Antonio Police arrested 21-year-old Michael Joseph Fobbs for approaching a man sitting on a bench alone and fatally beating him.

The 56-year-old man was waiting to board a bus when the incident happened.

Police said that Fobbs paused for a few moments and said, “I feel like killing someone,” and then continued to beat the man with his fists until he killed him, KENS 5-TV reported.

Amtrak security rushed to the scene but it was already too late.

The victim is from Texas and the Medical Examiner’s office has not released the man’s name because his family has not yet been notified.

Fobbs has been charged with murder and is in jail under a $150,000 bond.
