(Scroll down for video) A joyous vacation and bachelor party turned into mourning after the brother of the groom-to-be was killed by a stranger.

Now, the wedding was put on hold as the family is preparing to bury their son.

45-year-old Luis Campos of California, who was a married father of five children, was supposed to be the best man at his younger brother’s wedding before he was killed.

Campos, his two brothers and a friend went to Las Vegas, Nevada, for the bachelor party of the wedding that was supposed to take place over the coming weekend.

The men had been drinking, but were not drunk as they enjoyed the outdoor entertainment. At about 1:30 a.m., they decided to go to a nightclub in the 500 block of the iconic Fremont Street.

According to his brother, while waiting in line, a stranger demanded to know why Campos was looking at him.

Before Campos was able to respond and defend himself, the stranger punched him in the face with such great force that he fell to the ground unconscious.

Campos was rushed to the UMC Trauma Center, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Las Vegas police released surveillance video, showing the suspect and his friend running away from the scene after the incident.

Authorities described the suspects as Hispanic men in their 20s. Police are asking people who recognize the men to call them.
