Friday night, a man died after he was shot in the neck by a security guard at the El Coral Bar in Santa Ana, according to The Orange County Register.

According to Santa Ana police Sgt. Eric Rivas, when officers arrived around 9:30 p.m., they found a man lying in the parking lot with a gunshot wound.

The man, 37-year-old Leonel Bucio of Santa Ana, was shot by a security guard working at the bar. The two had gotten into an altercation prior to the shooting, according to police, although the security guard was not arrested. The investigation is ongoing.

This is not the first time there has been a shooting at El Coral. Last month, a 31-year-old man was shot in the leg outside the bar while trying to break up a fight.
