According to Sgt. Tim Klarkowski, the shooting happened at around 11:15 p.m. at the Tailgaters sports bar located near Bell and Reems Road.

When officers arrived at the sports bar, patrons were physically restraining 28-year-old Troy Paille, while other patrons were performing first aid to a 27-year-old man who had been shot.

The victim was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Investigators say the victim and Paille were associates and had previous disputes in the past. Investigators believe this was a targeted attack by Paille on the victim and an isolated incident.

Paille has been booked into jail on charges of first-degree murder, misconduct involving weapons, and possession of marijuana.
