PINON, NM - Navajo police say a New Mexico man is facing charges after he shot two men with one bullet.
The Gallup Independent reports (http://bit.ly/z0cIwR) that Richard Cooke was arrested for the death of Alvin Tachine and Leveil Natoni who were shot last month.
According to Navajo police, the three men were drinking when a fight broke out and Cooke left to get his rifle.
Authorities say Cooke then shot one of the men twice. The second shot went through the first victim's chest and also struck the second victim, who was standing behind the first victim, in the chest.
It was unclear if the single shot is what killed the first victim or if he died from both shots.
It was not known if Cooke had an attorney.
