Sports bar to raise money for slain security guard

first_imgLA MIRADA — Managers at Ocean’s Sports Bar were scheduled to meet Monday afternoon to plan a series of fund-raising events to help the family of a 28-year-old security guard who was shot to death at the establishment on Friday. Reyes Armando Garcia of Pico Rivera was shot just before 10:30 p.m. Friday by one of a group of people who were refused entry into the sports bar because of their gang attire, police said. Garcia left behind a family and several children, sports bar employee Candace Plantier said Monday. Deputy Johnie Jones of the Sheriff’s Department’s Headquarters Bureau said six men with shaved heads had been turned away from the bar where the victim worked. When they started drinking in the bar’s parking lot instead, Garcia told them to leave, Jones said. A fight broke out, and one of the group grabbed gun from a pickup truck and shot Garcia in the chest several times, he said. Garcia was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center, where he was declared dead, said sheriffs Lt. Doug Fetteroll of the Norwalk Station. The suspects were seen fleeing in a beige Chevrolet Silverado pickup, Jones said. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter. Something went wrong.
