We've learned the men allegedly reponsible for the murders of two Socorro brothers are reportedly Barrio Azteca gang members.
The men accused in the murders have been identified as Ricardo Zuniga and Victor Ignacio Gomez.
Both, according to the complaint are confirmed Barrio Azteca gang members.
Gomez has been arrested and Zuniga remains on the loose.
According to the complaint, the whole thing started as a fight outside the bar between the two suspects and the victims.
Witnesses claim that Zuniga pulled a handgun and shot the victims multiple times.
The complaint also indicates that during the fight the victims received a number of stab wounds.
What the criminal complaint does not make clear, however is why this fight started in the first place or if the men knew each other prior to this night outside the A&M bar.
