LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say two brothers were shot and killed while playing basketball at an East Los Angeles park.

Coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter says 33-year-old Antonio Aguilar of Palmdale died at the scene of the shooting Sunday at Ruben Salazar Park.

Winter says the other man died at a hospital. His name was withheld, pending family notification, but witnesses say he was Aguilar’s 28-year-old brother.

Sheriff’s Deputy Juanita Navarro-Suarez says witnesses told investigators that three people approached the brothers and began a conversation before someone opened fire.

City News Service reports detectives have not released a motive.
