Police in Fremont said Monday that they have arrested a man they say is responsible for killing three men inside a bar early Sunday morning.
33-year-old Igmidio Mista was taken into custody without incident around 9:30 a.m. Monday at a home at 611 South Park Ave. in Fremont. A relative answered the door when police arrived. Shortly thereafter, Mista came to the door and offered no resistance as officers placed him into custody.
Mista has been charged with three counts of murder after fatally shooting three people inside the Last Call Bar. According to police, Mista is an illegal immigrant and could face deportation to the Philippines at the conclusion of the case.
A judge denied bond of Mista on Monday, saying that due to his illegal status in the United States he is considered a flight risk.
28-year-old Ramiro Sanchez, employed as the bouncer; 26-year-old Jose "Andy" Chavez, an off-duty Elmore Police Officer; and 25-year-old Daniel Ramirez, a patron of the bar were killed after a fight broke out before 1:30 a.m. Sunday.
Relatives of two of the victims said that the shooter punched one of the victim's wives before leaving the bar and returning with a gun.
25-year-old Ramiro Arreola, a patron of the bar, was also shot in the alteraction. He was Life Flighted to a Toledo-area hospital where he is said to be OK.
