MARIN CITY, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two men were killed and a third survived a gunshot to the head after an armed fight broke out at a large apartment complex in Marin City, north of San Francisco.

Marin County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Lt. Doug Pittman said the violence began on Sunday with a domestic dispute in which other people tried to intervene.

Pittman told the Marin Independent Journal (bayareane.ws/1PgotdD) he did not know whether the victims were shot or might have died from other injuries. He said authorities initially received reports of gunfire and a possible altercation involving people with bats or sticks.

The survivor was taken to a hospital with a gunshot wound to his head.
