Two killed in Akron in separate incidents at city bars

AKRON, Ohio (AP) – Two people are dead in Akron after two separate incidents at different bars in the city between Thursday evening and Friday morning.

WEWS reports that Akron police say one man was killed inside a bar late Thursday when another man came inside, shot him and fled.

Police say several people witnessed the killing. Investigators have released few details but say they are trying to identify a suspect with the help of video and witnesses.

Police say the other death occurred after a fight at another Akron bar. Investigators say a fight broke out around 12:30 a.m. in the patio area.

Authorities say a man beaten there died at a hospital and a suspect turned himself in to police about an hour after the fight.
