Salem Police arrested two men after shots were fired at a Mexican restaurant and night club early this morning.

Lt. Dave Okada of the Salem Police Department said the suspects got into a fight with bouncers at the club, located at 2138 Lancaster Drive NE, around 12:30 a.m. Everardo Garcia-Garcia, 27, and Miguel Flores-Garcia, 23, allegedly left the club after the disturbance. They returned in a vehicle and fired shots into the air, Okada said, citing a police report.

No one was hit.

A short time later an officer located the vehicle near Lancaster Drive and Silverton Road.

Police stopped the vehicle and Garcia-Garcia and Flores-Garcia reportedly did not fight arrest. They were taken to the Marion County Jail.

Okada said nobody was evacuated from the club.

Garcia-Garcia was charged with six counts of menacing, eight counts of conspiracy, theft by receiving and unlawful use of a weapon. Flores-Garcia was charged with four counts of unlawful use of a weapon.

Both men have Immigration and Customs Enforcement holds. Okada was unsure whether the suspects are related.
