PHOENIX -- A suspect has been arrested in the shooting death of an off-duty security guard at a Phoenix bar last month.
Phoenix police said Friday that 21-year-old Alex Ray Flores was being held on suspicion of first-degree murder, burglary, endangerment and misconduct involving weapons.
They said 33-year-old Jesus Rafael Lozano-Vidal died March 14 after being shot several times after a closing-time altercation.
Lozano-Vidal was visiting the Mi Ranchito Dancing bar in central Phoenix where he works as a security guard.
After the bar closed at 2 a.m., police said Lozano-Vidal helped employees clear out the patrons when he noticed a man trying to leave with a bottle of beer.
Lozano-Vidal told the man he couldn't take the bottle and a fight ensued that led to the shooting.
