Police say there was a history of bad blood between Morgan and the 44-year-old bar manager, Christopher Johnson, before Morgan shot him after an argument in a back room just before 11 p.m.

Police say Morgan remained at the scene and was taken into custody and questioned.

Online court records show Morgan applied for a public defender at his arraignment early Wednesday and faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 1.
