The scene from this morning's shooting in Arizona involving two Dallas firefighters.

Super Bowl Trip Ends in Shooting for Two Dallas Firefighters

Phoenix media outlets are reporting that two Dallas firefighters -- 28-year-old Charles Whittaker and 34-year-old Reggie Cueington -- were shot early this morning, as they walked from a bar in Peoria, Arizona, to their nearby hotel. Says here they were shot at about 1 a.m. during what appears to be a drive-by, though authorities have no suspect or no motive for the shooting. The Arizona Republic adds that the shooter was in "either a white Crown Victoria or 80s-model Buick."

The men, in town for the Super Bowl, were air-lifted to a Phoenix-area hospital, where a local TV station is reporting that Whittaker has "life-threatening injuries," while Cueington has a gunshot wound to the leg and is expected to be OK. --Robert Wilonsky
