TULSA, Oklahoma -

Two men were arrested outside a nightclub after their alleged roles in the death of a man early Sunday morning.

Officers were dispatched to the scene just before 3 a.m. Sunday near the intersection of South Sheridan Road and East 21st Street.

Tulsa police said the men, identified as Jose Ledesma-Hernandez and Ramon De Jesus Garcia-Ibarra, were among a few individuals who refused to leave the club and were engaged in a confrontation.

The club owner attempted to stop the fight and asked the men to leave the club's parking lot. The men then decided to redirect their anger toward the club owner and began assaulting him.

Authorities said the men began kicking him as he fell to the ground. Security guards were attempting to break up the scene between the men and the club owner. A suspect's vehicle then sped toward one of the security guards who keenly jumped onto the hood of the car, avoiding injury. The vehicle left the scene.

Meanwhile, the owner then went into cardiac arrest, was transported to a local hospital and later died there.

While on scene, multiple witnesses pointed out the suspect vehicle to officers as it drove along East 21st Street. Authorities were able to pull the men over and arrested them.

Through the interview process, officers said Garcia-Ibarra was identified as one of the two men who assaulted the owner. The other man is an unknown male who is still outstanding at this time. Ledesma-Hernandez was identified as the man who struck the security guard with the vehicle.
