Police identify 'dangerous' suspects in sports bar triple shooting

- Brookhaven Police have identified two suspects they say were involved in a triple shooting outside a Buford Highway sports bar that left one victim dead.

Officers say 21-year-old Humberto Lorenzo Barcenas and 19-year-old Enrique Segura Diaz got into an argument with other customers outside the Acapulco Restaurant and Bar last Sunday.

The two men went to Diaz's vehicle to retrieve a gun, which Barcenas used to first shoot into a taxi cab and then shoot across the parking lot, police said.

Barcenas and Diaz have been charged with felony murder, five counts of aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
