ONTARIO, Oregon — Two men are dead after a shooting happened Sunday night in Ontario, OR, according to the county attorney.

Dave Goldthorpe, the Malheur County District Attorney, confirmed to KTVB on Monday morning that the shooting happened at the Rosewood Apartments in Ontario, just south of the Albertsons in town, and that two men were killed.

The two men were later identified as 38-year-old Martin Esteban Navarro and 45-year-old Christian Holman. Police believe the manner of death is a homicide but have not yet confirmed this.

According to Goldthorpe, police responded to the shooting at about 7:27 p.m. Sunday.

The district attorney for Malheur County did not share any further details with KTVB but did state that he will be meeting with investigators Monday morning.

"There is no reason to believe this is a random act," Goldthorpe told the Argus Observer, the local newspaper in Ontario.

Goldthorpe said no arrests have been made in the case yet.

Law enforcement continues to investigate the incident and is looking for potential suspects.
