Pullman police said officers found David Warner, 41, unconscious with a serious head injury around 2 a.m. Saturday. Officers were responding to a disturbance call at the Adams Mall parking lot.
Warner was taken to Pullman Regional Hospital and later transferred to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. A nursing supervisor said Warner was in critical condition Sunday morning.
A police statement Saturday said it's unclear what events led to the assault, and they're asking for help from witnesses. Police said Warner was accompanied by a 31-year-old male friend.
Police identified him as a WSU faculty member.
