Gresham man dies after bar fight

Police seek witnesses to incident

A Gresham man who was found unconscious in a bar's back parking lot has died.

Patrons at KC Sports Bar and Grill, 16246 S.E. Stark St., found the victim - Ron Lieberman, 55, of Gresham - at 2 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, in the bar's rear parking area, said Sgt. Claudio Grandjean, Gresham police spokesman.

Lieberman was unconscious and not breathing. Emergency personnel took him to Adventist Medical Center in Portland, where he was listed in critical condition until his death Wednesday, Sept. 27, said a hospital spokeswoman.

Through video surveillance footage, police determined that the man had been in the bar before he was involved in some type of altercation just before being found.

Gresham police are seeking witnesses to the altercation. Anyone who might have information about the case can contact Detective Kyle Lewis by calling 503-618-3151. Calls can be made anonymously.
