Asheville police said they are still looking for a man who has been wanted for five years in connection with two fatal shootings.

Ponce pulled out a gun and started shooting after a fight broke out at Billar Latino on Haywood Road, police said.

Officers said when they arrived, Ponce had already fled. Police believe he left Asheville immediately and they do not know where he is.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Asheville Police Department or Crime Stoppers at 828-255-5050.
