That shooting claimed the life of a 28-year-old on December 27th.

Erie Police said that once the forensics unit finished processing the crime scene, the deputy chief forwarded the findings to the Erie Nuisance Bar Task Force.

“They were currently reviewing that cause. They’ve made contact with the Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Control Board. We’ve updated them with everything we know going on at that store front. So what we’ll do now is continue to review that address and continue to investigate that and see where that leads us,” said Rick Lorah, Deputy Chief, City of Erie Police.
