Police today have released a sketch of one of the men wanted in the fatal attack on an Ecuadorian immigrant in Brooklyn.

Jose Sucuzhañay, 31, was attacked Sunday as he walked with his brother in Bushwick.

Family members said yesterday he is being kept on life support, but a source at Elmhurst hospital tells NY1 that Sucuzhañay was taken off life support yesterday. The New York Times says a death certificate has been filed.
