Two Arrested in Night Club Shooting
SPRINGDALE – Two men were arrested after an early morning shooting near the Zabana Night Club on S. Old Missouri Road in Springdale.
Police were called to the club around 2 a.m. Sunday. Eyewitnesses say several individuals were kicked-out of the club after being involved in a physical altercation. As they were leaving, two of the individuals made threats to return with guns, according to a police report.
A short time later, police say the same subjects who made the threats returned to the club in a vehicle, and from the parking lot fired two shots from a .45 caliber handgun into the night club, and then fled the area.

A second suspect, 34-year-old Cristino Echevarria-Medine was arrested later for the same charges.
