TRACY, CA - A man who was critically wounded in a Tracy restaurant shooting early Saturday morning has died.

Tracy Police Department Sgt. Tony Sheneman said 41-year-old Naim Bey, of Tracy, passed away early Monday morning. Bey was one of seven people shot at Amore's Restaurant at 130 West 11th Street around 1 Saturday morning.

Tracy police have arrested three men in connection to the shooting.

Sheneman said Michael Mau, 24, of Tracy, was taken into custody 12 hours after the shooting. He was booked into the San Joaquin County jail on seven counts of attempted homicide.

Elvis Mendoza, 28, and Johnny Martinez, 23, both from Tracy, were also arrested for accessory to attempted homicide, Sheneman said.

Police were told by witnesses a fight between two groups of people at the restaurant bar resulted in several patrons escorted out by restaurant security. Amore's becomes a nightclub setting after hours.

Sheneman said shortly thereafter, gunmen fired at least eight shots through the entrance, hitting six men and a woman inside. The gunmen fled the scene, witnesses said. 

Other than Bey, the others shot had non-life threatening gunshot wounds, Sheneman said. 

Sheneman said the injured woman found her own way to a hospital. Two men were taken to Sutter Tracy Community Hospital, two others were transported to St. Joseph's Medical Center in Stockton and another was taken to Kaiser Permanente in Manteca.
