The shooting happened just after 9 p.m. at the Wild Horse Pass Hotel and Casino near I-10. The Gila River Police Department told Fox 10 that the suspect, left the casino, but stopped and walked back into the casino.

The suspect approached a car in the parking lot and opened fire on 52-year-old Frank Pascua.

Pascua, a retired Bakersfield, California police officer, was taken to a local hospital where he later died. 

Rojas, who was a previous person of interest in this case, has been cleared.  Police have now directed their attention to Campos Sr., who is Rojas' father-in-law.
