Several young men were arrested Saturday evening following a fight inside the Lexington Walmart.

Lexington police were called to the store, where four men were allegedly involved in a fist fight. All four fled the area.

Officers found a pistol magazine in the area where the fight occurred and upon viewing surveillance video, identified the men involved in the fight.

About a half hour after notifying Dawson County officials and the Nebraska State Patrol to be on the lookout for the suspects, a Dawson County deputy reported one of the cars was heading back toward Lexington. The stop was made near East Frontier Street.

Lexington Police Chief Tracy Wolf says 22-year-old Pedro Martinez, 22-year-old Eriberto Rodriguez and 19-year-old Felipe Rodriguez, all of Lexington, were jailed on charges of third degree assault, disturbing the peace and terroristic threats. The fourth man, 26-year-old David Martinez, of Lexington, was cited for fight by mutual consent.

Pedro Martinez was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon and use of a weapon to commit a felony for allegedly showing the weapon in his waist band.
