HENRIETTA, N.Y. (WHEC) -- Deputies have identified the three victims who were injured during a massive brawl at a local bar. 

Deputies say 21-year-old Michael Mathis Jr., 20-year-old Raeshon Patterson, and 22-year-old Raekwon Green, all of Rochester, were stabbed during an altercation at Schramrocks Irish Pub.

Mathis Jr. was acquitted on all charges in connection with the triple homicide outside the Boys and Girls Club on Genesee Street in August 2015. 

Fire crews responded to the pub on Park Point Drive near RIT in Henrietta just before 1 a.m. Sunday. Fire crews say went to the bar because of concerns it was over capacity. 

While talking with managers, firefighters say several fights broke out inside the bar. The brawl then spilled out into the parking lot. That's when people started to surround a firefighter who was inside the truck. 

News10NBC spoke with a Henrietta firefighter who described the scene. 

"They were looking out for each other," Lt. Jared Guhl said. "They want to make sure first that the driver is with the vehicle away from them and safe and made radio contact with him; make sure he was secured and safe. They asked for more police officers to go to his area. They stayed with the police officer and away from the scene."

“The promoters and establishment are ultimately responsible for ensuring the safety of their patrons,” Sheriff Todd Baxter said. “This type of behavior will not be tolerated.”

Investigators say none of the victims want to speak or press charges.

One person was detained for criminal mischief. Deputies say more arrests are expected and the case is being referred to the New York State Liquor Authority.
