According to the affidavit, video surveillance showed Sanchez and a woman exit the bar after closing time to sit on the patio. Several minutes later, cameras in the front of the bar showed Juardo parking his car at the bar and walking around to the back before taking a seat with the other two.
The woman later told police that she knew the victim, though it was unclear in what capacity.
Juardo’s body language showed that after several minutes the conversation started to get heated and he stands up and moves toward Sanchez and the woman, the affidavit said.
The woman told police that Juardo started to call her names before he came up and shoved her on the ground. Juardo then turned toward Sanchez and then fell to the floor and when the woman looked up, she saw Sanchez with a gun, the affidavit said.
The two moved the body from the patio and tidied up the patio chairs that had been knocked over during the shooting. They left the bar, but Sanchez returned about an hour and a half later to clean the patio with bleach, the affidavit said.
A bartender at Shenanigans Cocktails identified Sanchez for ities.
Sanchez was arrested Sunday night and is being held on a $150,000 bail.
