ALLIANCE, Ohio (AP) - Police say an employee of a northeast Ohio restaurant walked into the kitchen and shot a co-worker to death before going outside and waiting for the police to come.

Police in Alliance, southeast of Akron, say 56-year-old Peter Ortiz and 26-year-old Akira Kirksey argued while working together at the Blue Fig restaurant on Wednesday afternoon. They say Ortiz left and then came back later with the gun and killed Kirksey.

Ortiz shot Kirksey several times, then went to the bar and drank from a bottle of tequila before going back and shooting the victim a final time, according to police. No one else in the restaurant was hurt.

He was arrested outside without incident and charged with aggravated murder. No attorney information was available.
