A man suspected of shooting a patron and a security guard at a downtown Sacramento nightclub last month is now behind bars in Sacramento.

Adrian Calderon, 30, of Sacramento is accused of firing shots in the Parlare Euro Lounge, 1009 10th St., in the early morning hours of Aug. 11. Sacramento police officers were flagged down and found two people inside the club with gunshot wounds. The victims were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to a Police Department news release.

Detectives determined that the shooting stemmed from an argument between Calderon, whom police described as a regular at the club, and another patron. During the argument, Calderon allegedly produced a handgun and fired one round, striking both the patron and the security guard.

On Aug. 17, with the assistance of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, Calderon was located and arrested in Las Vegas. During the arrest, police located a stolen handgun in Calderon’s Las Vegas hotel room, the news release said.

Calderon waived extradition and was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on Sept. 6, according to police. He remains in custody.

The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control suspended the Parlare Euro Lounge’s liquor license a few days after the shooting, and the club subsequently closed. The ABC said the license suspension followed a months-long investigation by the department and Sacramento police into a series of disorderly activities at the venue.
