U.S. business owner James Norris, 47, was shot and killed at his club, Bougainvillea, Tuesday at 11:15 p.m. in Parrita, on the Pacific coast. Norris was shot six times by a masked man who fled on foot, according to the Red Cross. Some half dozen people were in the bar at the time. Norris died at the scene.
