Police have arrested a man in the shooting death of a Manhattan bouncer. Eric Pagan was killed outside Forbidden City after a fight inside spilled onto the street and a man grabbed a gun from a nearby minivan.

Police arrested Louis Rodriguez on charges of murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon. There was no number listed at the address provided by police and it's unclear if he has a lawyer.

Officers responded to the bar on Avenue A near East 13th Street about 4 a.m. on Sunday, where they found Pagan and two other men bleeding from gunshot wounds.

The men, Salvador Moran and Robert Calbo, were hospitalized in stable condition.

Witnesses say Pagan was trying to calm the people down when he was shot. He was off-duty.
