TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a fight between two men has turned deadly at a Tampa bar.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies arrested 47-year-old Santos Rene Herrera-Cruz at his home without incident Sunday.

Herrera-Cruz and another man got into a shoving match at the La Raza Bar & Discotec early Sunday morning.

Authorities said Herrera-Cruz pulled out a handgun and fired two shots at a 36-year-old victim before fleeing the scene.

The victim, who has not been identified, later died at the hospital.

Herrera-Cruz was charged with 2nd degree murder with a firearm.

    You know a gun is a good thing to have, but don't take it in to a club. You get into a argument or maybe a fight and your common sense flys out the window. This person was looking for some trouble and he got it. So he shouldn't complain.
