GLOBE, Ariz. (AP) — The Latest on a deadly shooting inside a bar in Globe, Arizona (all times local):

2:20 p.m.

Police in eastern Arizona say they have yet to figure out why a man opened fire on patrons inside a bar, killing two and wounding two.

Globe Police Chief Dale Walters said Monday the 22-year-old suspect is in custody on the nearby San Carlos Indian Reservation on unrelated charges.

Walters says the suspect and the victims were playing pool late Sunday in Jammerz Bar when three of the victims went to smoke on the back patio.

Authorities say the suspect came out and started firing a semi-automatic handgun.

A 22-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman died at the scene. Two 20-year-old women were airlifted to Phoenix with critical injuries.

Police are asking anyone who was at the bar to contact them.

Walters says all the victims lived in Globe.

Authorities say two people were killed and two others injured in an eastern Arizona bar after a suspect opened fire.

The Gila County Sheriff’s Office said Monday it is assisting the Globe Police Department in investigating the shooting that occurred late Sunday night at Jammerz Bar.

According to investigators, a gunman walked in alone and began shooting.

Two people died at the scene. Another two victims were airlifted to Phoenix for life-threatening injuries.

A person of interest is in custody. But authorities believe the person is the shooter and no other suspects are outstanding.

They did not give a motive.

Officers are expected to give an update at a news conference later in the day.

Globe is roughly 87 miles (140 kilometers) east of Phoenix.
