A Hercules man accused of killing a man outside a Pleasant Hill bar is facing two counts of indictment, Contra Costa County District Attorney spokesmen said.
Andre Aaron Barozio, 34, faces felony charges of murder and possession of a firearm by a felon in the April 3 incident outside the popular Farrington’s Sports Bar, the DA’s office said in a statement.
Barozio is accused of shooting a 37-year-old Concord resident in a pub parking lot after a fight broke out between the shooter’s friend and the victim, the district attorney’s office said.
When officers arrived at the scene in the 1900 block of Contra Costa Boulevard, they found the victim — identified as Oscar Arellano Laredo — lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.
According to the District Attorney’s Office, witnesses reported seeing the suspect fleeing in a car shortly after the shooting, and identification of the vehicle and its owner matched the description of the suspect. Police arrested Barroso in Mexico on Sunday.
Barozio was returned to the Bay Area and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility on Thursday. His arraignment is scheduled for Friday in Martinez.
Another suspect, Antioch resident Angelo Martinez Delacruz, was also charged with assault with a firearm. His court date is scheduled for next Thursday in Martinez, the District Attorney’s Office said.
