EL PASO - We've learned that the FBI has arrested two men in a vicious beating over the weekend.
The crime happened at the Old Plantation-- which is considered a gay nightclub, in downtown El Paso.
The attackers used a bat to assault Lionel Martinez, a young man who had just left the club. He remains in critical condition.
Martinez's family contacted Newschannel 9 to report the FBI has arrested two suspects.
Police say the beating was gang-related; the FBI is investigating it as a hate crime.
