A man wanted in a double murder is behind bars. Police caught him late Friday afternoon.

Damen Blake is accused of shooting a man and a pregnant woman point-blank in a Pueblo bar Thursday morning. Witnesses said the suspect walked into Sharky's Bar just after midnight wearing a mask, went straight up to the victims and started shooting. Quincey Coates, 23, died at the scene. Nicole Vallejos, 28, was rushed to the hospital where doctors delivered her baby, but the child didn't survive. The infant is considered the second murder.

Pueblo police spent Friday searching for Blake. Police and SWAT could be seen in several Pueblo neighborhoods looking for him and executing search warrants.

Blake was arrested in a home on West Abriendo Avenue Friday afternoon.
