Two men are dead and another two are in jail after a shooting in Haltom City on Sunday morning.

Officers responded to the 1900 block of Bernice Street about 2 a.m. and found two men, 27-year-old Kevin Obando and 21-year-old Keith Obando, with gunshot wounds. Police said witnesses reported the shots were fired after a “disturbance escalated.”

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. Police did not say how or whether the men were related.

Two men suspected in the shooting left the area before police arrived, but were identified and apprehended separately hours later, police said.

Israel Ayala of Fort Worth and Joseph Ovalle of Haltom City, both 19, were each arrested on a charge of capital murders. Both men were being held in the Tarrant County jail Tuesday on $150,000 bail.

The investigation is ongoing, and police said additional arrests and charges are possible.
