WOLFFORTH, Texas (AP) Investigators say a man has been charged with capital murder in the shooting deaths of two men in a West Texas neighborhood.

Lt. Bryan Taylor with the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office says 49-year-old Jerry Flores will be arraigned Friday. Two men were found dead at the shooting scene Thursday night in Wolfforth (WUL'-forth).

Taylor says the three men knew one another but he wasn't sure how well.

Flores is in the Lubbock County Detention Center after being released from a hospital where he was treated for wounds to his face.

Sheriff's officials did not immediately provide additional details Friday. Names of the slain men weren't immediately released.

Wolfforth is a town of about 3,700 located just southwest of Lubbock.
