An arrest has been made in the fatal shooting of a bar bouncer who was killed while doing his job in New Jersey.

The suspect, Nolvin Garcia, was picked up late Sunday night in Laredo, Texas by U.S. Border Patrol agents.

Police believe Garcia shot Jacques Nelson when he tried to break up a fight in the parking lot of Misty's Restaurant and Bar in West Orange two weeks ago.

Garcia is being held in Texas pending extradition to New Jersey.
