TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Police have released the names of two men killed in a shooting in midtown Tucson.

They say 20-year-old Eugenio Pesqueira and 21-year-old Jose Pichardo were pronounced dead at the scene early Thursday.

Police say another man suffering from obvious gunshot trauma was taken to a hospital and is listed in critical condition. His name and age hasn’t been released by police yet.

Detectives found the victims in the front yard of a home after multiple 911 calls reported shots being fired near Swan Road and 22nd Street.

Police say initial reports indicate the men were shot after an argument between two groups of people.

They say the shooting might be gang-related.
