HICKORY, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say an argument outside a North Carolina bar led to the shootings deaths of two people.

Hickory police spokeswoman Chrystal Dieter said in a news release that two men fired on five people outside J. McCroskey’s Irish Pub and Grill around 2:15 a.m.

Authorities didn’t say what the men were arguing about.

Dieter said 21-year-old Justin Aiken and 21-year-old Cody Bouphavong were killed. A third man was critically injured, a fourth person was treated and released and a fifth person was not injured.

Police say they were given a description of the car the shooter drove off in.

Officers arrested 23-year-old Dontray Cumberlander and 23-year-old Greydon Hansen a short time later. They are charged with two counts of murder. It wasn’t known if they have lawyers.
