Police said the shooting happened as Euhommie Bond, 41, the owner of Spanky's Bar and Grill in Jackson, was trying to escort Michael Robinson, 29, out of the bar after a fight. 

According to investigators, Robinson continued to fight Bond and security officers at the front door of the bar, eventually pulling out a gun and shooting Bond before leaving the scene.

Bond was taken to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital, where he died a short time later.

Jackson police officers caught up with Robinson shortly after the shooting, arresting him and another person in his car.
