BRADENTON -- Anyone who was at the La Habla bar, 5649 15th St. E., late Friday or early Saturday might be able to help the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office solve a crime.
Detectives now know that an incident that ended with the shooting death of 28-year-old Elvis Ruiz at 2:56 a.m. Saturday began with a disturbance at the Bradenton bar, sheriff’s spokesman Randy Warren said Monday.
“We can use some help,” Warren said. “We believe it started at the bar and moved. We know there was gunfire later and two people got shot, but we don’t know exactly how it all started. Obviously, there were witnesses at La Habla.”
