Customer fatally shoots man who killed Arlington sports bar manager

Police responded to an active shooting call at the Zona Caliente Sports Bar in South Arlington around 6pm.

Arlington police are still trying to process a horrific shooting scene that unfolded at a popular restaurant and bar. During that confrontation, the suspect shot and killed the employee.

Officials say 48-year-old James Jones walked into Zona Caliente sports bar in Arlington on Wednesday evening and fatally shot the manager, 37-year-old Cesar Perez.

Witnesses said Jones yelled at Perez before killing him, but it has yet to be confirmed if the two previously knew each other or what Jones' motives were.

Police Lt. Christopher Cook says a customer then fatally shot Jones.
