GLOBE, Arizona — Police are investigating a shooting at a Globe, Arizona bar Sunday night that left two people dead.

The shooting occurred at the Jammerz bar around 11:30 p.m. local time; police say a lone gunman walked in and opened fire. 

Four people were shot during the incident, and two of those people were killed. There is no word on the condition of the surviving two victims.

One person of interest was taken into custody. Authorities said they are confident the person in custody is the suspect.
