Details Emerge on Death at Albemarle Bar

Posted: Updated: July 31, 2013 10:31 PM EDT

The Albemarle County commonwealth's attorney is releasing new information about a man's death after a fight outside a bar.

Commonwealth's Attorney Denise Lunsford says Vincent Shifflett died from injuries he suffered in a fight outside the Riverside North restaurant and bar.

A new search warrant shows police took video and audio recordings from the bar's surveillance cameras as evidence.

Joseph Terry, a 32-year-old from Keswick, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in connection with Shifflett's death. Court records show Terry has been cooperating with the investigation since the incident in late June.

The owner of Riverside North says three men walked into the bar as it was closing. They were turned away and Shifflett followed them out.

Shifflett's family members say he was attacked that night and left for dead in the parking lot. There is a memorial for him just feet from the restaurant.

"Detectives have been working the case. We did review the results from the medical examiner's office. At that point we consulted the commonwealth's attorney and that's when the decision was made to arrest Mr. Terry in connection with the death," said Carter Johnson, spokesperson for the Albemarle County Police Department.

Terry is out of jail after posting a $10,000 bond. He did not return calls for comment. 

He will have a preliminary hearing on the felony charge on September 5.
