    FREDERICK COUNTY, Va. ( DC News Now ) — The Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) said a person was hurt and an Arizona man was arrested following a fight and shooting at a restaurant Saturday night.

    Calls to FCSO started coming in just after 10 p.m. to report that shots had been fired outside of the Backseat Bar and Grill on Full House Drive.

    According to one caller, gunshots were heard near the parking lot and a suspect was being held down by diners.

    Investigators said that 30-year-old Jorge Camacho of Phoenix, Ariz. was belligerent with customers inside of the restaurant. He was asked to leave and escorted to his truck.

    Camacho came back a short time later and pointed a gun at a man sitting in the outdoor seating area. They had been arguing earlier in the evening, witnesses said.
