Milwaukee, WI - Police is seeking information to the whereabouts of a 1986 or 1987 Chevy Camero Z28 allegedly used by homicide suspects to flee from the 600 block of S. 5th Street on November 4. Nearby video surveillance camera caught the suspects fleeing from the crime scene, according to Milwaukee police. Two victims were assaulted by a group of suspects outside the Tropical Latino Club, ending in the death of a 45-year-old man and injuries sustained by a 37-year-old man.
The Tropical Latino Club owner has offered a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect or suspects involved in the Nov. 4, beating death of Mariano J. Lopez, 45. Police are looking for multiple suspects in the Lopez homicide and brutal assault of Toby Villarreal, 37, from Greenfield after leaving the Tropical Latino bar. 
Lopez of Franklin was fatally assaulted at the 600 block of S. 5th St. A nearby  surveillance camera recorded the beating and possible suspects involved.
His friend Villarreal survived, but suffered three broken ribs and a collapsed lung. Lopez later died at a local hospital.
