Police investigate a fatal shooting at Happy Place Bar

- A man was gunned down inside an Orlando sports bar named Happy Place. This isn't the first shooting to happen here either.

Orange County deputies say they got the call just after 5:30 a.m. on Monday. Upon arrival, the Sheriff's Office says that they found 24-year-old Adrian Manrique Peralta shot inside. He was injured at the time, but by the time that fire rescue made contact with him, he was pronounced dead on scene. 

This is third shooting to occur at this bar, which is located on Southland Blvd, just off of South Orange Blossom Trail. Deputies confirmed that they did make arrests in a previous homicide there. 

Since this incident, the Happy Place Sports Bar has closed. The building owner evicted the bar owner on Tuesday afternoon.
