Accused cop killer arrested

(Fremont) - Fremont Police have arrested Igmidio Mista, who they say went on a shooting rage Sunday morning inside of Last Call Bar, killing three men including an off-duty police officer.

Fremont police chief Timothy Weirsma says Mista was arrested Monday morning when police went to a home in Fremont.  Mista came to the door while police were on the porch.  He surrendered without incident.

Mista is being held in jail.  Chief Wiersma says Immigration and Customs officers were in contact with the department shortly after the arrest, and the Phillipines consulate will be contacted to see if Mista is in the U.S. legally.

Jose "Andy" Chavez, a 26-year-old Elmore police officer, Ramiro Sanchez, a 28-year-old bartender and Daniel Ramirez, a 25-year-old customer, were killed.

A fourth person was also shot, but he was flown to a Toledo hospital in critical condition. 

Fremont is about 35 miles southeast of Toledo.
