KENT — Police in the south Seattle suburb of Kent say they have detained two men for questioning in the shooting deaths of two other men at a gas station.

The Wednesday morning shooting apparently followed an argument over blocking access to a pump.

It happened about 8:30 a.m. at a Shell service station.

Witnesses told KOMO-TV that two men with music blaring had parked in a way that blocked other customers.

A Kent fire department spokesman, Kyle Ohashi, says medics from the city or a nearby King County station declared the victims dead at the scene.
