Santa Ana : 2 Brothers Shot Dead in Fight Outside Bar

An argument outside a McFadden Avenue bar escalated to violence, ending with two brothers dead of gunshot wounds, authorities said Sunday.

Jaime Rojas, 22, and his brother, Jerman, 27, died late Saturday at the scene of the shooting, Los Dos Amigos bar in the 2500 block of West McFadden Avenue, according to police.
