PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Police have identified the person killed in a shooting at an Oregon adult entertainment club Friday.

Nathaniel Acosta, 24, of Yelm, Washington, died Friday after Ryan Newman, 25, shot him, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

Police said they believe the two were doing some construction work at the Gold Club in Milwaukie, Oregon. Police have not said what provoked the shooting, and said they don’t know if there was a connection between Newman and Acosta.

Newman’s father, who was there at the time, wrestled the gun out of his son’s hands after the shooting, holding him to the ground until police arrived, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Marcus Mendoza said.

Newman was arrested and booked at the Clackamas County Jail for murder. He is being held without bail. It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer to comment for him.

Mendoza said the club was not open.
