Police arrested a 33-year-old Fremont, Ohio, man in connection with a shooting at a bar early Sunday morning that left three people dead.

Igmidio Mista, who is not a U.S. citizen, was arraigned at a hearing Monday afternoon and held without bond on three counts of first degree murder.

“Due to access to weapons, the weight of the evidence against the defendant and the confirmation of the defendant’s identity, it is necessary to prevent him from being released,” said Fremont Law Director Jim Melle, at the hearing. “We’re asking for preventative detention -- no bond -- for the safety of the citizens of Fremont and the community.”

Mista is charged with the shooting deaths of three people at 1:30 a.m. Sunday at Last Call Bar. The victims are Jose Andy Chavez, 26, an off-duty police officer, and Fremont residents Ramiro Sanchez, 28, and Daniel Ramirez, 25.

Ramiro Arreola, 25, was shot and injured in the incident, and was treated at Promedica Toledo Hospital and released.
