Man dies after being hit with cue stick

A man died after being hit in the head with a cue stick at a bar in Fairhill Sunday night.

The man, whom police said was elderly, suffered head trauma and was taken by medics to Temple University Hospital.

Officials responded to the Olympico bar on Lehigh Avenue near Fairhill Street at about 9:30 p.m. and the man was pronounced dead just before 10 p.m.

The victim’s identity has not yet been released, and police were unsure Sunday night of the man’s exact age.

Police took witnesses from the bar to the Homicide Unit for interviews Sunday night.
