Cambria County Coroner Jeff Lees announced Friday that authorities are investigating the death of the owner of the Johnstown Freight Station.
Authorities say police were called to the restaurant/bar Monday morning for a report of a fall injury.
Officials say the victim, identified as 65-year-old Lance Ross, was found inside the establishment and was transported to the hospital, where he later died.
Lees says that Ross suffered multiple blunt force trauma injuries as a result of a “violent assault” and his death has been ruled a homicide.
Johnstown Police and the Cambria County District Attorney’s office are continuing to investigate Ross’ death.
Authorities are asking for the public’s help in providing additional surrounding Mr. Ross’ death.
