Authorities have apprehended a 47-year-old man believed to be involved in the tragic death of a 21-year-old woman at a bar in Philadelphia, Your Content has learned.

The victim, identified as Jailene Holton, was fatally shot while she stood in the back of Philly Bar and Grill on Tuesday evening.

The suspect, Anthony Nelson, was arrested at Harrah’s Casino in Atlantic City, where he had allegedly been hiding out. The shooting incident unfolded when a group of three men entered the bar around 11:30 PM on June 28, hoping to play pool. However, they were informed that the tables were occupied by a league.

As the group was asked to leave due to their disruptive behavior, Nelson allegedly unleashed a hail of gunfire. Reports suggest that he fired a total of 15 rounds, with 10 striking the building and five shattering the glass windows.
