Two victims are in critical condition after a shooting at a motel in West Helena, Arkansas.

Witnesses told Helena-West Helena police that an argument occurred between several men inside and outside the Sands Motel.

Investigators said both groups shot at each other, and two men inside the hotel were hit.

Witnesses said at least four men left the area in a vehicle, but it is unclear if any of these men were shot.

The two victims were taken to the hospital in critical condition. Investigators found bullet holes that had traveled through three separate motel rooms. Luckily, the rooms were empty.

Investigators also found a large amount of drugs in a motel room and a vehicle in the parking lot, as well as guns involved in the shooting.

Police are searching for the suspects, believed to be armed and dangerous, driving a white Buick.

If you have any information on the suspects, call the Helena-West Helena Police Department at (870)-572-3441.
