A third security guard is being sought in connection with the case as well. A preliminary investigation indicated that an armed suspect approached several security guards and tried to disarm them, but the suspect was subdued and three shots were fired. The suspect suffered a head injury.
A gunshot spotter in the area alerted police and the injured suspect was found by police investigating the shots fired.
Apparently, police are investigating whether the injured suspect was actually shot inside the tavern. Those involved in the shooting incident then left the scene after abandoning the injured suspect outside of the tavern, according to sources.
Moreno, Diaz and the bar owner were taken into custody in connection with the shooting. Diaz and Moreno have charges pending, but the female bar owner was released on bail and is facing a misdemeanor obstruction charge.
La Zacatecana bar celebrated its Grand Opening on Saturday, according their Facebook account.
