Investigators said the incident started when one of the victims approached two men in an alley in Rundle.

The two unknown men then demanded the victim hand over the keys to his truck and trailer, threatening him with a shotgun. When he refused, he was shot.

The second victim fought with the two suspects before he was also shot.
