Pizarro is currently on parole for a prior robbery conviction and is not allowed to legally carry a firearm, Adams said according to the outlet.

Adams said they were able to identify Pizarro as a suspect because of a “handprint or a latent fingerprint” on Dennard’s car outside the bar.

Pizarro and Dennard allegedly got into an argument that escalated outside the bar on North Fifth Street in Muhlenberg Township, police reported.
