Milwaukee, WI - The Tropical Latino Club owner has offered a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect or suspects involved in last Sunday's 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.
Both Lopez and Villarreal were jumped and beaten by a group of suspects shortly after stepping in to defuse an argument between his female cousin and a man inside the Tropical Latino. After Lopez left the bar around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, the suspects attacked Lopez and Villarreal outside the bar, according to police.
Villarreal says they were attacked from behind and doesn't recall anything after being assaulted.
