    San Jose police arrested one person following a double shooting at the DZO Sports & Bar late Wednesday after a large fight inside the bar. It's at least the fourth shooting at a San Jose bar or restaurant in a little more than a month.

    Lt. Steve Iagorio said the man, who was not immediately identified, was booked on two charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Iagorio said there was some type of argument at the bar, which broke out into a "pretty good melee."

    The shooting was first reported before 10 p.m. at the bar in the 2800 block of Alum Rock Avenue in East San Jose.

     When officers got there, they found two men suffering from at least one gun shot wound each, police said.

    The victims were taken to a hospital.

    On Thursday morning, scores of beer bottles still lined the bar, and a pool of blood still needed to be cleaned up in the back.

    Police Officer Albert Morales said police talked to about 30 or 40 witnesses who were inside the club at the time but are seeking "additional witnesses."

    The DZO Sports & Bar is a club with a predominantly Vietnamese-American clientele that is under new ownership, having recently opened after the previous business, Café 288, closed, Morales said.

    The case will be referred to the Police Department's vice unit for an investigation into possible violations of the owner's liquor license.

    On Jan. 1, Alexander Tach Nguyen, was shot to death at the Reign Bar on Capitol Expressway, and one of two suspects has been arrested.

    On Jan. 11, five people were shot at a Chris Brown show at the Fiesta Nighclub on Monterey Highway.

    On Feb. 10, a woman eating at the May Hong restaurant at the intersection of Senter and Tully Roads was struck by a stray bullet fired through the glass window.
