FREMONT, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Fremont Police have arrested the suspect wanted after a deadly bar shooting over the weekend.

Around 9:30 a.m. Monday, police officers went to a residence in the 600 block of South Park Avenue, following up on leads. When they knocked on the door, a relative to the suspect answered. Igmidio Mista, 33, then came to the door and was taken into custody without incident. Police were preparing to issue a $10,000 reward for his arrest.

Mista was transported to the Fremont Police Department, served charges and was later taken to court. He is being charged with three counts of first degree murder. He faces 15 years to life in prison for each of the three murder charges. A preliminary hearing could be scheduled in 10 days if they choose to have one. There will be a grand jury hearing before then to decide if the death penalty is a possibility.

Mista is not a U.S. citizen; he is from the Philippines. He could face deportation if convicted. He is being held without bond because he is a flight risk. 

Police say the shooting occurred around 1:30 a.m. Sunday at the Last Call Bar on West State Street. According to witnesses, the shooting started after an argument inside the bar. Mista is accused of fatally shooting three people and injuring another.

Police have identified the victims as Ramiro Sanchez, 28, who was the bartender, Jose "Andy" Chavez, 26, an off-duty Elmore police officer hanging out at the bar, and Daniel Ramirez, 25, also a patron of the bar.

The fourth victim, Ramiro Arreola, 25, was taken by air ambulance to a Toledo hospital and has since been treated and released.

The village of Elmore has a small police department. The police chief says the department is not just losing an employee, but a family member.

"We're more like family. We're a small department, so you get to know your employee very, very well, and they become a good friend. And like I said, losing an officer like that is almost like losing a relative. It's been rather tough on us," said Police Chief George Hayes.

Officer Chavez was also a volunteer soccer coach at Woodmore High School. His daughter is a student at Woodmore Elementary School. Grief counselors are available for students as they go through this troubling time.

A vigil took place by the bar around noon Monday. Another is planned for Monday night at 8 p.m.
