Suspect in bar shooting formally charged with open-murder


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- 23-year-old Orlando Mitchell, an employee at Wayside West has been formally charged with open murder and a felony gun charge for the shooting death of customer Damien Tajada.

The victim’s fiancé, Kia Smith told TV-3 that Tajada confronted Mitchell early Thursday morning for over-serving a friend.

An argument followed and Tajada may have struck Mitchell in the head with a glass.

Mitchell then allegedly pulled a handgun and chased Tajada, shooting him multiple times, in front of dozens of witnesses.

Mitchell, had a large bandage on his head during the video arraignment, claiming he was innocent and that he had a permit for the gun.

The Judge told him to save it for his lawyer.

Bond was denied.
