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.
Rojas left the scene but later surrendered to police at the Westside Regional Command Center. Additional charges are pending further investigation.
Police said in a news release that Rojas was being escorted out by Melendez, the bar manager, when Ramirez attacked Rojas. Police allege Rojas then pulled out a gun, shooting Ramirez, Melendez and Caldero. The three victims were transported to University Medical Center where Ramirez was pronounced dead. Melendez and Caldero were listed in stable condition.
