William David Floyd was ejected from the pub and then later got into an altercation shortly before 10 p.m. Friday, police said.

Officers were called and found Floyd unresponsive when they arrived. Paramedics then rushed him to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The cause of death has not yet been determined, and the investigation is ongoing.
