A 33-year-old has been arrested in a fatal shooting on Bell Road.

The shooting happened around 1:20 a.m. on Friday, May 11 in the parking lot of the Arabian Palace Hookah Lounge in the 1100 block of Bell Road.

Reports stated the victim, 24-year-old Cesar Reza, went with two friends to that location. They pulled into the packed parking lot and intended to go into the hookah lounge.
