SAN DIEGO — Deputies took a man into custody on Wednesday morning after his uncle suffered life-threatening injuries in a bar fight, according to authorities.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said its deputies responded to a call Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. about a fight at Shooters Cocktails on Jamacha Boulevard in Spring Valley. First responders found 61-year-old Raymond Bermudez Jr. suffering from a head wound.

Paramedics took Bermudez to a hospital but deputies say he is not expected to survive his injuries.

Through their investigation, deputies learned 30-year-old Ronald Francis Valdez exited the bar with Bermudez, who is Valdez’s uncle.
