Two people were arrested for attempted first-degree murder in a shooting in Pueblo early Friday morning.
Police arrived at the Red’s Alibi Lounge, 1107 S. Prairie Avenue, after getting calls of reported gunshots in the area. Police found a car parked in the parking lot of a bar. The car had several bullet holes in it and the driver said that someone opened fire on him.
The man in the car told police he was able to “dodge the bullets.”
The victim told police that he had gotten into an argument with two people in the bar. When he got into his car, shots were fired.
Police searched the area and located a vehicle matching the victim’s description. They arrested 34-year-old Timothy Rino and 34-year-old Sherrie Ortiz on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder and complicity to attempted first-degree murder.
Rino was also charged with possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
