PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – A man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of another man at a west Boca Raton bar.

Garry Pierre was arrested Tuesday in Broward County. He is accused of shooting Christo Maccius, 25, early Saturday morning outside O'Connor's Pub & Package Store, 9900 Sandlefoot Blvd.

A search of the Broward Sheriff's Office online jail records shows that Pierre, 28, faces a charge of first-degree murder.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Deputy Eric Davis said investigators received several tips identifying Pierre as the shooter and leading to his arrest.

A motive for the shooting wasn't immediately known, but Davis said early information indicated that Pierre and Maccius knew each other.

Pierre was being held at the main Broward County jail without bond.
