SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police have arrested a second person on Monday in connection with a shooting at an East Side bar that left three people dead.

Police say 26-year-old Eduardo Delarosa was arrested without incident during a traffic stop in the 1300 block of Southwest Military Drive. Officers said homicide detectives had enough probable cause to believe Delarosa possessed a firearm and fired multiple shots at the victims.

The shooting happened around 3:23 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 15, after hours at the Boom Boom Sports Bar in the 1600 block of S. New Braunfels Avenue, near I-10.

On Aug. 16, police arrested 34-year-old Daniel Barragan during a traffic stop at Southwest Military Drive and Curtis after he was followed from his home, San Antonio police Chief William McManus said. Barragan was charged with capital murder-multiple persons and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, records with the Bexar County Jail show.

Police said a fight involving Barragan, Delarosa and several other people started inside of the bar before it spilled into the parking lot.

Barragan then went to his car, got a semiautomatic rifle and opened fire, striking two women and three men on the way back to the bar, according to McManus.

An arrest warrant affidavit states that officers reviewed social media videos that showed the suspect and shooting victims involved in the fight. Video surveillance also captured the fight and shooting, investigators said.

Two people, April Rodriguez, 32, and Dan Edward Martinez, 28, were pronounced dead at the scene, and Mauro Rodriguez, 26, died at the hospital, according to the affidavit.

Two other people were in critical condition at the Brooke Army Medical Center.

It is not clear if De la Rosa and Barragan know each other, officers said.

De la Rosa will be transported to the Bexar County Jail and booked for capital murder, police said.
