A 23-year-old man shot in the head following an argument in an East Side tavern died early Saturday in Erie County Medical Center.
Byron Barnes of 105 Burgard Place was shot about 3 a.m. outside a bar at East Ferry Street and Bailey Avenue, Broadway Station police said. He apparently had argued with his assailant earlier, police said. No arrest has been made.
An autopsy will be performed today to determine the caliber of the gun used and the exact cause of death. The bullet was fired into the right side of the Barnes' head, investigators said.
