(KSL News) Two arrests have been made in a shooting at a Park City nightclub, and more may be coming.

Kautoke Tangitau, 30, was killed during a concert at Club Suede Tuesday night. It's believed the shooting was the result of a fight between two rival gangs.

Last night the Salt Lake County Metro Gang unit assisted in the arrests at a home at 1729 Zenith Avenue.

Investigators arrested Telefoni Palu and Viliami Tukuafu on felony rioting charges. They're being questioned to find out what role they played in the shooting.

Chief Deputy Dave Booth responded to the incident Tuesday night.

Chief Deputy Dave Booth/ Summit County Sheriff's Office: "Nobody wanted to help us or assist us or move. They were upset that someone had shut the band down, even though someone had just died right there."

Officers searched all those leaving the club Tuesday night but didn't find a weapon.

Police say these will not be the last arrests made in the case.
