ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

A 26-year-old Oakdale, Minn. man was arrested Sunday afternoon in connection with a deadly bar-close shooting at Malina's Sports Bar in St. Paul.

The shooting claimed the life of Malina's owner, 45-year-old Vone Moua.

According to St. Paul police, the shooting happened around 2:40 a.m. Sunday, roughly 40 minutes after closing time. Police have released few details except to confirm one man was killed and two others were injured.

The two who survived were employees at the bar. One has since been released from the hospital and the other is expected to recover.

The city requires working surveillance cameras both inside and outside the bar, but investigators have not said whether those cameras were rolling at the time of the shooting.

Neighbors told FOX 9 News Moua took over Malina's several years ago and had cleaned up the establishment; however, they say the area around the bar remains troublesome. In fact, a man was shot and killed on the same block in 2011.
