A $500,000 warrant has been issued for a man charged in connection with the slaying of another man at a West Salt Lake bar parking lot Saturday.
Miguel Sevilla, 26, address unknown, was charged Wednesday in 3rd District Court with murder, a first-degree felony, in connection with the shooting death of Amador Rios-Nario.The charges state that Sevilla pulled into the parking lot of La Pantera, 544 W. 1300 South, where the bar's security guard, Jorge Cardenas, directed him to a parking spot.
A short while later, Cardenas heard several gunshots and saw Sevilla "shooting into the passenger's side" of a car, the charges state. Rios-Nario, who was inside the car, was shot seven times in the torso.
Police say the shooter then got back in his car and drove onto 1300 South. Witnesses told police a woman was riding in the passenger seat of Sevilla's car.
Cardenas later identified Sevilla in a photo spread, the charges state. Sevilla is described as having a gold-capped front tooth, a dark complexion and as being about 5 feet 5 inches tall.
Cardenas called for help, but Rios-Nario died at the scene. The body was taken to the medical examiner's office for an autopsy, which determined Rios-Nario died of multiple gunshot wounds, the charges state.
