Mesquite police said Friday that two students, 17-year-old Treveon Sims-Hubbard, of Mesquite, and 17-year-old Dwayne Lassai, of Seagoville, confessed to the shooting that took place outside a Wells Fargo Bank on Thursday afternoon.

Investigators said an ongoing feud between several people got heated Thursday afternoon and that Sims-Hubbard and Lassai pulled out guns and began firing.
