Rusk County authorities say two men died after being shot but one stayed alive long enough to describe who allegedly attacked them. Sheriff Danny Pirtle says two suspects remained at large Tuesday.

Pirtle identified the two slain men as 29-year-old Rigoberto Tovar Pina and 27-year-old Steve Abran Parra, both of Center. The victims were discovered Monday afternoon along a rural road near the town of Reklaw.

Pirtle says one of the victims was able to describe, to a witness, the two suspects before he died. The sheriff says both fugitives were last seen in Pina's 1996 green Cadillac. The sheriff's department did not say which victim offered the description before dying.

A motive for the shootings is sought.

Reklaw is about 140 miles southeast of Dallas.
