DULUTH, Ga. (AP) - Gwinnett County police have made an arrest in a shooting that left two men dead.

Police said officers received a 911 call shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday reporting that two men had been shot in a Duluth home and that the suspect had fled.

When officers arrived, they found one man dead from a gunshot wound and another man who was also shot. The injured man was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Cpl. Michele Pihera said Monday that 24-year-old Davon Dayron is facing two felony murder charges and two aggravated assault charges.

Dayron was awaiting transport to the Gwinnett County jail. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had attorney.

Police said the victims were family friends who had been invited to the home earlier in the day.
