UPDATE 4:40 p.m.: The name of the man who died in connection with a bar fight Sunday night has not yet been released pending notification of next of kin, according to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Cipolla.
Cipolla said authorities also haven’t yet identified a cause of death and that an autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
“We have not yet determined if anyone is criminally culpable,” Cipolla said. “We’re not labeling it a homicide as some media outlets have reported. We’re calling it a death investigation that is still open and active.”
The fight involved two “small groups of people” and no weapons are believed to have been used in the altercation, Cipolla said.
