Police: 1 killed, 2 injured in shooting near Vail

Gunfire at a bar near the Colorado ski resort town of Vail has killed one and injured two, and police said a man was quickly arrested in connection with the shooting.

Bar patron Nancy Lewis said a man who was being escorted out of Sandbar Sports Grill Bar Saturday night pulled out a gun and shot someone in the arm. Other witnesses told the Vail Daily newspaper that the man fired several shots, then re-entered the bar and fired several more shots.

Police received an emergency call at around 7:30 p.m. Vail Police Chief Dwight Henninger said one of the injured victims has suffered significant injuries. He said the second person wasn't severely wounded.

Police haven't released the names of the victims. The town of Vail has identified the shooting suspect as 63-year-old Richard Moreau of Vail. Authorities said he's being held in the town's jail.
