— Three men were arrested in New York Monday and charged in connection with a weekend shooting at a north Raleigh bar, police said.

Danauri Taveras-Perez, 21, Ramon Rolando Salce, 23, and Pedro Emelio Sosa, 22, are each charged with four counts of attempted murder.

An employee and three customers were shot early Sunday at the Restaurant Monte Bar at 2645-D E. Millbrook Road after an argument, police said.

The four victims were taken to WakeMed for treatment. Police said two had non-life-threatening injuries, while the other two suffered more serious injuries.

Raleigh police detectives developed leads Sunday that led them to contact New York Police Department detectives who are members of a regional fugitive task force. The two law enforcement agencies worked closely throughout the night to share information and coordinate efforts until the arrests could be made, police said.

The shooting remains under investigation.
