    Man shot dead at San Antonio West Side bar - San Antonio Express-News

    SAN ANTONIO — A customer described as drunk was shot to death early Thursday by an employee of Barton's Boozery, a bar in the 7000 block of West Military Drive, police reported.

    The employee, Orlando Dewain Lopes, 34, told police the man, 42, was very intoxicated when Lopes took his car keys away about 2:30 a.m.

    Lopes told the customer he wasn't going to let him drive drunk, police said, and to call a family member or a cab.

    The customer became aggressive and started to argue, Lopes told police.

    Lopes added that the man reached behind his back multiple times, and he thought the man had a knife.

    Lopes said the customer pulled a black Sig Sauer .9 mm handgun from behind his back and pointed it at Lopes, who then pulled his own Glock .45 automatic pistol and demanded the man put his gun on the ground. He then fired what he thought were three shots at the man, police said.

    Lopes checked if the man still was alive, moved the gun away and called police to report the shooting. Police said he put both guns on a counter.

    The older man, who hadn't been identified, had several gunshot wounds, officer Roger Zuniga said. Emergency medical technicians pronounced him dead about 2:30 a.m..

    Police don't anticipate filing charges against Lopes, but the case is still under investigation, Zuniga said.

    Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission records indicate the bar has 15 administrative violations on file since 2000. The bar was fined and apparently received a four-day suspension in 2010 for permitting consumption of alcohol during prohibited hours, the records show.

    The reporter's spell checker changed it to "automatic", from "assault", and he was so intent on reporting the color of the Sig correctly he missed it?

    I'll give them a pass on the Glock because of what .45 GAP stands for. The .9 Sig is funny, but as far as the media is concerned, other than calling it black, they left out most of the media keywords for evil type guns.

    Of course if it were a tan pistol, I guess they would just call it tactical. Never understood why they feel it's so important to cover the color of the weapon (other than that girl from Florida who shot an intruder with her pink .38)

    Sounds like the bartender was trying to close the barn door after the horses ran out. Not supposed to let bar patrons get drunk at all....

    "Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission records indicate the bar has 15 administrative violations on file since 2000. The bar was fined and apparently received a four-day suspension in 2010 for permitting consumption of alcohol during prohibited hours, the records show."

    Not familiar with bars, drinking, or anything like that, so forgive my ignorance. But could what is quoted in the article mean trouble for the man working there? If not, why include it in the article. Seems like after every, seemingly justifiable shoot, the media puts little "fun facts" at the end, to make it appear as though the man defending himself "should" somehow be in the wrong.

    Glock has 45acp and 45 GAP guns, the bigger issue with that article is the .9mm Sig. Probably best off throwing the gun at someone.
