MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico City prosecutors said they have arrested two men in connection with the death of Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of the late political activist Malcolm X.

An official of the city's prosecutor's office who was not authorized to be quoted by name said the two suspects are employees of the bar where Shabazz reportedly got in a violent dispute last week.

Shabazz, 28, died of blunt-force trauma injuries. A companion said the dispute involved a $1,200 bar tab.

The official was unable to provide further details Monday.

Much like his grandfather, Shabazz spent his youth in and out of trouble. He was taken to a hospital in Mexico City where he died Thursday.
