The man fatally shot outside a William Street bar early Sunday was identified Monday as Dwon T. House, 36, of Buffalo.

Detective Chief Dennis J. Richards of the Buffalo Police Department said House apparently was in an argument with at least one other person just outside a tavern at 372 William Street when patrons heard multiple gunshots and the mortally-wounded victim stumbled into the tavern about 1:50 a.m.

House, whose last known address was on Jefferson Avenue, was declared dead at the scene of multiple gunshot wounds. Homicide detectives were searching for his killer or killers Monday evening. Richards asked anyone with information about the shooting to contact police by calling or texting the TIPCALL number – 716847-2255, or using the department’s website www.bpdny.org.
