DONNA (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Investigators say a Texas homeowner has shot and killed two people who asked about buying roosters then drew guns on the resident.

Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino on Monday said no charges were immediately filed over the shootings near Donna.

Deputies on Sunday night received 911 calls about gunfire, then found one man dead on a road and a second person deceased at a residence.

Trevino says preliminary information indicates two people drove to the home, inquired about buying some roosters, then flashed guns. The sheriff says the homeowner retrieved his own weapon and shot both individuals. All three guns have been recovered.

Names of the pair who died weren’t immediately released. Autopsies were ordered. Trevino says the roosters were apparently fighting cocks.

Donna is in South Texas, about 500 miles south of Dallas.
