BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Police say they're continuing to investigate a shooting that left two men dead after a dispute over a towed vehicle in Birmingham.

Police identified the men who died in the gunfire Saturday as 21-year-old Roderious Smith of Fairfield and 48-year-old Timothy Kimble of Birmingham.

Police say the men began arguing after Kimble towed Smith's broken-down vehicle off a road to a house where the shooting occurred.

Authorities say shots rang out as the dispute got worse between Smith and another person who was riding with the tow-truck driver. Both Kimble and Smith were hit.

Kimble was dead at the house, and Smith died later at a hospital.

The investigation is continuing, and no arrests have been made.
