    Two women were in critical but stable condition and a suspect was in custody Thursday after a shooting at a Little Havana bar and restaurant.

    Miami Police say 35-year-old Fidencio Membrano opened fire inside and outside Molina Rojo at 446 Southwest 8th Street late Wednesday night.

    Police said he walked into the bar, had an argument with bartender Jessenia Hernandez, pulled her hair.

    When she asked why he did it, he responded, "Did I offend you?" and pulled out the gun and started firing his gun randomly., police said.

    He filed 14 rounds inside the bar, Miami Police spokesman Sgt. Freddie Cruz said.

    Two women who were inside the restaurant were hit with gunfire, but Hernandez took cover and wasn't hit, police said.

    The two unidentified women were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital where they were in critical but stable condition, police said.

    "It was a chaotic scene in the bar and it was a chaotic scene once he left the bar," Cruz said, as Membrano was still armed with bullets. He was apprended a few blocks away, however.

    Membrano was booked into Miami-Dade Jail around 5:30 a.m. He faces three counts of premeditated attempted murder and battery, and after appearing in court Thursday, he is being held without bond, according to Miami-Dade Corrections.

    Membrano also goes by the alias Joel Perez, according to court records, and an attorney is not yet listed for his case.
