ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A Hispanic man was shot just before 3 a.m. outside of Club Eclipse in the 200 Block of West Broad Ave.

Albany Police found 22-year old Alejandro Bustamante on the ground in a parking lot near the club.

The suspects left the scene but were caught by APD officers on Cordele Road.

21-year old Cristian A. Vargas, 19-year old Jose Gonzalez, 17-year old Evelio Gomez, and another man were taken to the Law Enforcement Center for questioning.

Bustamante was shot and stabbed several times. Witnesses said the victim got into a fight inside of club Eclipse before being told to leave by security.

Once in the parking lot, the victim was approached by several suspects and got into another fight before someone started shooting.

WALB will have more details on the victim's condition and the latest on the case on WALB.com and on WALB NEWS 10 at 6.
