World Cup Shootings: 2 Dallas Men Dead After Soccer Argument

Two men were killed in Dallas after a World Cup argument turned violent, police say. According to the Dallas Morning News, four men were quarreling about "an upcoming World Cup soccer game" in the early hours Sunday morning when one of the arguers retrieved a gun and opened fire, killing two others.

The shooter has not been identified, but NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reports that the victims are 17-year-old Raul Santoyo and 28-year-old Luis Santoyo-Vega.

Since the Americans' loss to Ghana occurred before the killings, the argument does not appear to have been focused on the USA Men's National Team. The first two games to be played following the deaths were Germany's drubbing of England and Argentina's victory against Mexico.
