Also, an unidentified witness told police that he saw Fancher get into a fight with the 46-year-old victim on Monday, across the street from the Ace’s-Deuce’s Lounge. According to the witness, the victim punched Fancher a couple of times. That’s the same spot where the shooting took place Tuesday night.
The witness told authorities he thought the victim embarrassed Fancher when he knocked him to the ground, and Fancher wanted retribution.
The victim remains hospitalized after he was shot in the chest.
