Gregory Coleman Jr., the longtime Short North Pint House employee who was critically wounded in a bar fight, has died, according to a family attorney.

According to attorney Edward Hastie, who is representing the Coleman family, Gregory died on Sunday morning as a result of the injuries he sustained in a bar fight earlier this month.

The fight, which took place in the early morning hours of Sept. 5 on the 1000 block of N. High St., was captured on surveillance video that was released by police last week.


In the video, Coleman is seen engaging in a physical altercation with one man, before another enters the frame and strikes him in the head. The two men then continue to attack Coleman while he is unconscious.

Shortly after releasing the surveillance video, police identified Dwayne Cummings and Christian Foster as the suspects attacking Coleman in the video.  

The two were previously charged with attempted murder, and police are seeking to upgrade the charges to murder following Coleman’s death.
