Sheriff's Deputies say shooter is still at large

Sheriff's Deputies have made an arrest in connection with a shooting at a Socorro bar which left two men dead.

28 year-old Victor Ignacio Gomez was arrested yesterday. Sheriff's Deputies say he was involved, but was not the shooter.

A second man, 29 year-old Ricardo Zuniga is believed to be the shooter. Witnesses say he was last seen fleeing the scene in a dark colored vehicle, possibly a Dodge Intrepid.

As we've reported, brothers Jose and Jesus Vargas were gunned down outside the A&M Bar off of Alameda early Monday morning.

Investigators still haven't determined a motive for the shooting.

Sheriff's Deputies believe Zuniga is still in the Borderland. They say he's lived in San Elizario and has contacts in El Paso.

He's considered to be armed and dangerous. If you see him, call Crime Stoppers at 566-TIPS.
