Metairie, La. - The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating an apparent bar fight that ended with one man dead.

Once there, deputies found a man lying on the floor of the business.  He was pronounced dead a short time later.  Witnesses tell deputies the victim and another man were fighting when the victim was knocked to the floor.

Family members say the victim was 40.  They told FOX 8 his identity, but detectives are still in the process of notifying next of kin.
