    The investigation is ongoing.

    One of two men found shot and dumped along a rural east Texas road was able to describe two suspects before dying.

    Rusk County Sheriff Danny Pirtle said the victims were discovered Monday afternoon near the town of Recklaw and the suspects in the killings are sought. A message left by The Associated Press with the sheriff's department was not immediately returned Tuesday.

    Pirtle said one man was in the road, while the other was on the shoulder.

    Pirtle said a person who found the two gunshot victims was able to talk to the second victim before he also died, to get a description of two suspects who drove away in the dark-colored Cadillac.

    Names of the victims were not immediately released. A motive for the shootings is sought.

    Recklaw is about 140 miles southeast of Dallas.
