Archuleta died from a gunshot wound to his head and chest, and White succumbed to a gunshot wound to her chest.

The security guards were responding to a disturbance in one of the rooms after a guest was kicked out of her room by two men at Arizona Charlie’s Decatur, located at 740 South Decatur Boulevard.

Metro police were investigating the incident and working to determine a motive for the shooting.
