Man Shot Dead Outside West Haven Bar ID’d

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (CBS Connecticut/AP) _ West Haven police say a man has died after being shot outside a bar during a melee so big that officers from other towns were called in to help.

Police Sunday identified him as Jaymar Spain, 23, of West Haven.

Officers responded to 911 calls at about 2 a.m. Sunday and arrived at a chaotic scene outside the Lager House Bar and Grille.

Police found Spain unconscious suffering from a gunshot wound. He later died at a hospital. Police say he may have been involved in a fight that began in a bar bathroom and continued outside.

Officers say many people were fighting outside the bar when they arrived. Police from Milford, Orange and state police responded to the scene.

Police say numerous people at the scene refused to cooperate with authorities.

No arrests were announced.
