SALISBURY, NC (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – A suspect has been arrested for shooting and injuring three people at a Salisbury restaurant, local authorities say.

Officials responded to calls regarding gunshots at Los Arcos, located at 1311 Klumac Road around 10 p.m. on Friday. Three gunshot wound victims were located. Two were transported to Baptist Hospital in critical condition and one was treated on the scene and released.

An initial investigation revealed a suspect fled the scene and a description of the vehicle was obtained. The vehicle was located a short time later along Highway 601 and Hugo Alonso, 20, was arrested.

Some community members are saddened and shocked by the incident.

“I feel like I don’t really know if it’s going to be okay to come back here if it’s going to continue being that way,” customer Porsha Rice told WJZY.

Alonso faces multiple charges and is being held under a $1 million bond.

It is unclear at this time what led to the shooting or what the relationship is between the victims and the suspect.

“You just have to always be vigilant to your surroundings but so much is going on in the world now,” another customer said. “You really just don’t know what to expect anymore.

This remains an active investigation.
