FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Federal authorities in Arizona have arrested two brothers sought in a homicide in Amherst, Massachusetts.

The U.S. Marshals Service says 33-year-old Soknang Chham (cham ) and 35-year-old Soksot Chham were arrested without incident Tuesday after being spotted near a bus station in Flagstaff.

The Marshals Service says the arrests of the two brothers from New Salem, Massachusetts stem from an Oct. 15 fatal shooting outside an Amherst bar and that a motive for the shooting isn’t known.

However, the Marshals Service says in a statement announcing the arrests that information suggests that the victim had “laughed” at one of the brothers.

Authorities in Amherst previously identified the victim as 31-year-old Jose “Joselito” Rodriguez and said the shooting occurred at an apartment complex and that a second man was wounded.
