FREMONT – A suspect has been arrested in the shooting deaths of three men over the weekend, including an off-duty police officer.
According to a statement from Fremont Police, at 9:29 a.m. officers went to a residence in the 600 block of South Park Avenue to follow up on a lead regarding suspect Igmidio Mista, 33, who was wanted for murder.
Officers knocked on the door and were met by a relative of the suspect, and Mista himself them came to the door as officers were on the porch. They apprehended him at the doorway and placed him into custody without resistance or incident.
Mista was taken to the Fremont Police Department and served the charges.
Mista was not questioned, as he asked for his lawyer upon arrival at the police department.
The shooting itself occurred early Sunday.
Killed were 26-year-old Elmore police officer Jose Andy Chavez, 28-year-old bartender Ramiro Sanchez, and a 25-year-old customer, Daniel Ramirez.
A fourth man who was shot at the bar, 25-year-old Ramiro Arreola, was flown to a Toledo hospital in critical condition.
Immigration and Customs officers made contact with the department shortly after the arrest and will be contacting the consulate of Phillippines regarding Mista and his legal status in the United States.
