A 48-year-old man is dead following a reported fight in a downtown Rhinelander tavern early Wednesday morning.

The Rhinelander Police Department says it responded to Sackett's Bar at 66 N. Brown St., at approximately 12:23 a.m. Jan. 1 following a report of "an altercation."

Upon arrival, officers observed two individuals on the floor of the bar with apparent injuries. 

Emergency medical personnel responded to the scene and one person was transported to Ministry St. Mary's Hospital for treatment of injuries. The other individual, a 48-year-old male, died before he could be transported from the scene. 

Police have not identified either party. The name of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of family members.

The Rhinelander Police Department, Oneida County Medical Examiner and the Oneida County District Attorney's Office are investigating the matter.

Anyone with information about this crime is urged call the Rhinelander Police Department at 715-365-5300. Callers may remain anonymous.
