Two charged with homicide outside Kana Club

NOW: Two charged with homicide outside Kana Club

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Two men have been charged in the death of Angel Ortega outside Kana Mojito Club over the weekend.

Police say witnesses identified 25-year-old Omar Estrada, and 24-year-old Jose Sanchez as the shooters involved Ortega's death. 

Witnesses say Jose Sanchez and another man got into a fight on the dance floor and were kicked out.

That’s when they say Sanchez went to his car and got a gun.  According to the criminal complaint, Sanchez shot Angel and another person as they were exiting the club. 

Another witness says Omar Estrada then shot someone else before the two took off. 

Neither Sanchez nor Estrada are in custody.

Tuesday evening, more than a dozen people attended a neighborhood meeting at a bar next to Kana. 

The owner of Kana told CBS-58 he would be addressing the crowd at that meeting, but backed out at the last minute.

Ortega's family says they still want answers as to why the 20-year-old Angel was allowed inside the club in the first place.

    "It's frustrating because he was only 20. What was he doing in the club?", says Angel's Uncle Rafael Ortega. 

    "It would have been nice for us to ask him questions and he could have answered those questions, but he's nowhere to be found," says Ortega.
