(NBC NEWS) Two employees of a Mexico City bar are under arrest in connection with the death of Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of slain political activist Malcolm X.

Shabazz, 28, reportedly got into an altercation last week at the bar over a disputed $1,200 tab.

Mexico prosecutors, in a statement translated by NBC News, said David Hernandez Cruz and Manuel Alejandro Pérez de Jesús, waiters at a bar called The Palace Club, were “likely responsible” for Shabazz’s death.
