Dallas police said they were called to a mobile home park on the 3900 block of South Ledbetter Drive just before 11:40 p.m. and found a man who had been fatally shot.

Officers then found a second man with gunshot wounds, who police said was transported to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Police said a third man was injured during the incident, though his condition is not known.

The third man and another man fled the scene and drove more than 15 miles to the Highland Park Emergency Room on Lemmon Avenue. Their car was found spattered in blood and had a bullet hole in the front windshield.

Investigators said it appears the shootings stemmed from a fight that broke out at the mobile home park. Police called the men who fled the scene "persons of interest" and detained the driver.

The names of the victims have not yet been released.
