The police department said it would have no public comment on the matter until Monday at the earliest.

If anything, Goedert seemed to be trying to deescalate the situation before getting he was sucker-punched.
According to our source, Aberdeen police are investigating whether the initial dispute between bar patrons who were not affiliated with Goedert, was racially motivated.
