Eddie G's Scene of Homicide

A man was shot in Eddie G's Bar early this morning and has died of his wounds after being transported to a local hospital. Northampton County Coroner Zach Lysek has ruled the death a homicide, the Easton Police Department reports..

Easton Police say they were called to the bar at about 12:15 a.m. for a report of shots fired and found the man.

An argument and a fight between a number of people inside the bar preceded the shooting, police said. Some of those involved reportedly may be members of the Blood gang and are thought to be from the Newark, NJ area originally.

Police added they are still investigating at the scene and have received little cooperation from those at the bar at the time.

Easton Police are searching for two people of interest: One is a black male, about 6-foot-1-inch tall with a heavy build and long dreadlocks wearing dark clothing who was seen exiting the front of Eddie G's. The other is a black male of average weight and height, with a full beard or goatee, wearing an orange sweatshirt jacket with white writing, who reportedly fled out the back of the bar.

The city police department is also trying to identify numerous individuals that fled the bar after the shooting and before officers arrived.

The victim is not being identified at this time due to the ongoing investigation, authorities said.

Any information pertaining to the homicide can be directed to Detective Matt Rush at 610-250-6639 or the Easton Police Investigation tip line at 610-250-6635. Callers can remain anonymous.
