FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the fatal shootings at a Texas dance studio (all times local):

3:50 p.m.

One of the two men fatally shot at an unauthorized party at a hip-hop dance studio in Fort Worth had graduated last month from high school.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (http://bit.ly/296HOjH ) reports that 18-year-old Jordan Larkin graduated in May from North Crowley High School in Fort Worth.

Rex Russell, whose wife, Jeanene Young Russell, was one of Larkin's high school teachers, tells the newspaper that the teen was a "great kid."

Rex Russell says Larkin spent a lot of time with him and his wife, including spending last Christmas with them. He says Larkin came from a "pretty rough background" but "had his life going in the right direction."

He says the teen had hoped to join the military.

1:45 p.m.

Authorities have identified the two men fatally shot at an unauthorized party at a hip-hop dance studio in Fort Worth.

The Tarrant County medical examiner's office has identified those killed early Saturday as 18-year-old Jordan Larkin and 22-year-old Treavon Lewis.

Police officer Daniel Segura said Sunday that there have not been any arrests.

Blood stained the outside of Studio 74 hip-hop dance studio and broken glass from a trophy case covered the floor after the suspected gang-related shooting that also injured five people. The studio's owner says the group had trespassed on the property.

An unknown number of people exchanged gunfire from Studio 74's parking lot and across the street.
