The incident happened at Pasadita Bar on the Iguana Creek Road, Spanish Lookout area around 10:45 last night. Guillermo Guerra, 64; Victor Ismael Perez, 52; and Elvin Larios arrived at the bar in a black pickup and ordered a few drinks when they got into an argument with Jose Anibal Molina Estrada, 59.
