SAN JOSE, Calif. — Hoping for public help to bring to justice fugitives behind one of San Jose's bloodiest crimes, police Tuesday released a graphic video captured by security cameras at the Mexicali Club earlier this year during a deadly kidnap attempt.

The bar invasion left three dead, one badly wounded and the getaway driver and a mystery man in a bulletproof vest on the run.

The video shows an unidentified suspect grappling with the owner of the bar as he attempts to yank him at gunpoint from the club into a waiting SUV. Toward the end of the video, the club owner — who police say was targeted over a drug debt — wrestles himself free, but is gunned down by the mystery suspect in the parking lot. The owner survived.
