PLYMOUTH, Pa. -- A gunshot victim found on the street early Thursday morning in Luzerne County has died.
That shooting happened around 2:30 a.m. outside Robby Nick's Sports Bar on East Main Street in Plymouth.
The owner of the business says his bar was closed and he was outside trying to break up a fight between two men when he heard the shots.
State police Kyon McDonald, 34, of Plymouth, shot Tierees Owens, 33, also of Plymouth, several times. Owens was taken by ambulance to a hospital where he later died.
An arrest warrant for criminal homicide was issued for McDonald.
Police are checking surveillance video and talking with witnesses to figure out exactly what happened.
The bar owner says it is not the first time there has been violence in this area. He told Newswatch 16 he plans to close his business for good.
"It's the second one in the last two years, same place, I don't know, I don't know what happened,” said Wally Lubinski of Plymouth.
One man showed up to check on his granddaughter, who works at the bar.
"I was wondering if she worked last night, that's what I was coming over to find out. I don't know what this world is coming to, really,” said Don Shymanski of Plymouth.
People who live in Plymouth were not shocked by the news of a killing at that spot.
Before it was Robby Nick's sports bar, this place was RisNick's, a man was shot and killed outside the bar in 2017.
Before that, it was the Bull Run Tavern where there was a fatal shooting inside in 2008.
It was eventually closed as a nuisance bar.
"It's all the time, it's getting really scary around here. There was a couple times I called 911 because there's so many fights on this corner all the time and I get scared because last time it was a shooting and this time was another shooting. I knew it was fatal, it's scary,” said Joanne Reeser of Plymouth.
