KITTANNING, Pa. - Three people are facing charges in connection with a deadly fight at a bar last weekend in Kittanning.

Investigators said Keith Brison and Otilio Cosme were arrested Wednesday night on criminal homicide and aggravated assault charges.

Police said the two men are responsible for the death of James Sullivan. An autopsy revealed that Sullivan suffered three fractured ribs and a fractured skull while involved in a fight outside the Wick City Saloon.

State police said information from several witnesses and information from social media helped them arrest the men.

"A lot of people contacted Kittanning police and our agency with tips and information that they had been made aware of through social media," State police Lt. Steve Ignatz said.

Earlier this week, police also arrested Dennis Rosenberger in connection with Sullivan's death.
