A second man wanted in connection with a bar fight and shooting is being sought by the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

Detectives are seeking the public's help to identify the man, the department said in a news release. It released video surveillance of the man on Thursday.

The shooting took place just before 2 a.m. April 19 at the Palo Verde Bar and Grill, 5801 S. Palo Verde Road, near East Drexel Road.

When deputies arrived at the bar, they learned two men and a woman were attacked as they left the bar following a birthday party, said Deputy Tracy Suitt, spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

During the attack, two men pulled out pistols and fired at the victims, and then continued assaulting them before they left.

The injured men, ages 31 and 36, and the injured 27-year-old woman were taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

One man wanted for questioning in the shooting turned himself in and faces multiple charges, including attempted first-degree murder.

Rene Francisco Bravo, 35, faces charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault with serious physical injury and misconduct involving weapons by a prohibited possessor.
