ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Authorities say they’ve arrested four men in connection with a shooting outside a Rochester bar that left one person dead and seven others wounded earlier this year.

Rochester police announced Monday that they’ve charged two men, ages 24 and 25, with second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Ernesto Padilla Aybar outside the Mexican Village nightclub on Feb. 7.

Two other men, ages 23 and 26, were charged with assault.

Police say the bar was closing for the night when a fight broke out inside the nightclub and spilled over into a parking lot across the street. Officials say the suspects were in two vehicles when three of the men fired multiple times into the crowd outside the bar.
