Dallas police say a DJ's playing of a gangsta theme song sparked violence that led to deadly gunfire during a birthday party.

Two people were killed and four were hurt in the attacks early Sunday outside the El Angel nightclub.

Authorities believe two gangs had declared a truce during the celebration.

But then the song was played -- "Put Yo Hood Up."

Twenty-two-year-old Lendl Carey and 20-year-old Kenneth Haggerty were fatally shot.

The four people who were wounded were treated and released from a Dallas hospital.

So far no arrests.
