FALL RIVER, Mass. (WLNE) — The third man charged in connection to a deadly shooting in Fall River was arraigned Wednesday.

Anthony Miranda, 36, of New Bedford, was held without bail for his alleged involvement in the shooting over the weekend.

Miranda has been charged with manslaughter in the death of 45-year-old Jose Roberto Zelaya.

He is also charged with assault and battery by discharge of a firearm, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, carrying an illegal firearm and carrying a loaded illegal firearm.

Police said Miranda, along with 42-year-old Luis Colon-Delgado and 23-year-old Jose Pagan, were part of a bar fight that started inside Riverside Sports Bar and Restaurant on Rodman Street.

After the fight moved outside, Zelaya tried to help a bouncer break up the fight, which is when prosecutors said the three men allegedly attacked him.

Colon-Delgado and Pagan were arraigned Tuesday.
