Essex County authorities have charged a suspect in the fatal shooting of a bar bouncer this week.

Jacques Nelson of Orange was shot around 2 a.m. Monday outside Misty's Restaurant and Bar. Police say the father of four was shot while trying to break up a fight. Police later released a surveillance photo taken outside the bar.

On Thursday the Essex County Prosecutor's Office identified the suspect as 24-year-old Nolvin Garcia of Orange and charged him with murder and weapons offenses. Garcia is at large.
