Police have released the mugshot of the man involved in a shooting at a West El Paso bar earlier this month.

Josue Rojas Jr., 29, allegedly shot and killed Ruben Narciso Ramirez, 37, at about 10:46 p.m. on Feb. 17 at Flips Bar, 1071 Country Club Road. He also allegedly shot Bryan Scott Melendez, 30, and Emmanuel Caldero, 33, but their injuries were non-life threatening.

Melendez and Caldero were listed in stable condition.
