Lafayette man killed in Sunday night bar fight

A Lafayette man has died after a bar fight Sunday night and a Sunset man has been arrested in connection with the incident.

To our eyes, this appears to be one of those tragic situations in which alcohol and escalated emotions combine to create a very volatile situation.

According to Lafayette Police, officers responded to a bar in the 3900 block of Moss Street Sunday night (an exact time has not been disclosed). There, they found the 38-year-old Lafayette man. He was injured and unconscious on the floor of the bar.

The man was taken a local hospital, but doctors were not able to save him. He was later pronounced dead.

The 37-year-old Sunset man whom police blame for the Lafayette man's death was arrested on the scene. He has now been charged with second-degree murder.

Police have not released any details about what led to the fight, if the two men knew one another, or what sorts of injuries were inflicted on the now-deceased man. They have said the case remains under investigation.

Because of the nature of the work we do in our criminal defense law office, we are very familiar with circumstances in which inflamed passions take over and lead people to commit acts they would never otherwise even contemplate.

We extend our condolences to the family of the deceased. We also hope that the man whom police have arrested is given a fair and thorough chance to make his case when he appears before a court.
