Early Saturday morning,
Authorities say Pablo Bonilla, 23, got into an argument around 1 a.m. with Jordan Lee McKenna, 27, inside the club at 11921 N. Dale Mabry Highway. The argument occurred because Bonilla saw McKenna talking to his girlfriend, authorities said.
A few hours later, while Bonilla, his girlfriend and others were getting into their vehicles, a blue Dodge Charger driven by McKenna stopped next to them. An unknown white man got out of the car and fired shots, hitting Bonilla and the unidentified victim.
Bonilla later died, and the second victim was treated and released from St. Joseph's Hospital. Authorities arrested McKenna and charged him with accessory after the fact to second-degree murder and accessory after the fact to attempted second-degree murder. Authorities are searching for the shooter in the ongoing investigation.
