DES MOINES, Iowa -- Des Moines police are investigating the city's tenth homicide of 2017.

It happened just before 9:30 Tuesday night in the 2800 block of Beaver Avenue near first American Bank and Saints Pub, that's in the heart of Beaverdale.

Police believe two vehicles met in the parking lot just north of Saints Pub, where an argument led to gunfire. When officers arrived to the scene they found 36-year-old Antonio Quinn and 33-year-old Michael James Jr. had been shot.

Quinn died from his injuries and James was treated and released. Both men are from Des Moines.

Police are working on interviewing witnesses to the shooting but haven't released any information on possible suspects.
