WENDELL - Authorities in Gooding County say two men are dead in a murder-suicide at the Magic Valley Portuguese Hall in Wendell.

Sheriff Shaun Gough has told the Times-News that 56-year-old Tony Sousa of Wendell and 34-year-old Augustin Nopal Eonu of Paul were killed with a rifle Friday.

The sheriff did not say which one of the men shot the other.

Sousa was the president of the Portuguese Hall, and Eonu was a construction worker doing renovation work.

The sheriff said other construction workers were outside the hall, but did not hear what led up to the shooting.
