Two men have been arrested in connection with a bar fight that turned deadly Sunday morning.

The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit confirms Cesar Victor Flores, 32, was shot multiple times outside a South Bend bar and later died. Dimas Deleon, 40, was shot once, but is expected to survive.

Shortly before 3 a.m., police were called to the Anchor Inn in the 220 block of W. Western Ave. Investigators say an argument that started inside the bar spilled out into the parking lot, where the shooting took place.

Two men have been arrested by Metro Homicide investigators. One of them faces a preliminary charge of murder and the other for criminal recklessness. Their names are being withheld until formal charges are filed early this week.

A forensic autopsy for Flores is scheduled for Monday morning.
