DALLAS (AP) - Two men are dead and one is hospitalized with a leg wound after what Dallas police say was an argument over an upcoming World Cup soccer game ended in gunfire.

Police Cpl. Gerardo Monreal tells The Dallas Morning News that four men were at a party in southern Dallas when the argument erupted around 3 a.m. Sunday.

Monreal says one man went to his car, got a handgun and opened fire, killing two men, aged 17 and 28. That triggered a struggle in which several more shots were fired, one wounding the suspect in the leg. He was taken to Methodist Dallas Medical Center for treatment.

No names have been released, and Monreal says charges will be filed after the suspect is discharged from the hospital and booked into jail.
