Caught on Camera: Happy Club Goers Persons of Interest in Beating Death Moments Later

Two men seen on surveillance video smiling and embracing as they leave a Philadelphia nightclub leaving actually be persons of interest in a deadly beating outside that same club.

Philadelphia Police released video of the two men – described as being in their 20s – leaving the Tierra Colombiana Restaurant's nightclub at North 5th  and W Raymond streets in Hunting Park in the early hours of Oct. 11.

Two other men left a short time later only to get into an altercation with a group of men outside the club. The group of men, which may have included the men captured on camera, then beat and kicked the duo around 2:55 a.m., said Philadelphia Police.

One of the beating victims, Antonio Bautista Guzman of Ridley Park, Pennsylvania, later died from his injuries, said police. Guzman was just 22 years old and police called his death a case of murder.

A $20,000 reward is offered for information leading to arrest and conviction of the murderers.

Police asked that anyone who recognizes the men captured on camera -- described as being armed and dangerous -- leaving the club to call 911. You can also leave a confidential tip at 215-686-8477 or text a tip to 773847.
