Brawl outside Aurora restaurant over cold food ended in deadly shooting, arrest documents show

A man trying to keep the peace outside an Aurora restaurant as several people argued over refusing to pay for food that had gone cold was shot in the chest and later died as a result of his injuries, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Denver7 on Monday.

Jacqueline De Paz, 28, was arrested two days later and is facing second-degree murder charges in the death of Rudy Arguello-Rios following the Dec. 23 shooting outside the Mariscos El Rey 2 restaurant.

Police documents state De Paz, along with a group of about seven other people, complained to a server that a nearby door that was opened, as well as the outdoor vents of the restaurant, led to their food getting cold, therefore they would not be paying for what they had consumed that night.

Witnesses who saw the argument told police the server then threatened to call police if they left without paying, at which point the group exited the restaurant. The documents state the server then followed the group outside to demand payment.
