516 on First Street

An autopsy is planned Monday afternoon on the man who was found beaten unconscious in a downtown La Salle bar.

The 28-year-old from La Salle was pronounced dead Friday night at Rockford Mercy Hospital.  He was flown there Friday morning after police and paramedics were called to 516 on First Street about an injured man stemming from a fight. 

La Salle Detective Mike Smudzinski says they have reviewed surveillance tape from inside the bar and also have interviewed multiple witnesses.  No arrests have been made yet.
