The man who police say shot and killed a man in the parking lot of a Miami restaurant and wounded his brother in June is behind bars in South Florida, authorities said.
Barbaro Felix Fortun, 25, was taken into custody in Texas on July 30 and was extradited to Miami to face charges of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder in the June 17 shooting of Joshua and Gregory De Jesus, Miami Police said Friday.
Police say Fortun and Joshua De Jesus, 18, got into an argument in the parking lot of La Familia Bar and Restaurant at 2818 Northwest 22nd Street. The argument escalated and when Gregory De Jesus, 20, tried to intervene, Fortun pulled out a .40 caliber pistol and shot both brothers, police said.
Gregory De Jesus was shot in the abdomen and rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he later died. Joshua De Jesus was shot in the right hip area and also hospitalized but survived.
Fortun fled the scene on Joshua De Jesus' bicycle, police said. Records show he was booked into Miami-Dade jail Thursday night.
He's now being held without bond and it's unknown whether he has an attorney.
