Two men are wanted in connection with a fight and shooting that injured a father and son early this morning in Washington County, authorities said today.

Pennsylvania State Police have obtained a warrant for Tevin Heyman, 20, who is charged with two counts of attempted homicide, and Eric Johnson Jr. 24, who is wanted for aggravated assault.

The incident occurred outside the Cozy Corner Bar in in Canton Township about 1 a.m., state police said in a press release.

The injured men, Akili and Robert Sutton, were taken to a Pittsburgh hospital, KDKA-TV reported. Their conditions were not immediately available today.

About 1 a.m., Akili Sutton left the bar and got into an argument outside with a man, state police said. He went inside the bar again and came back with Robert Sutton, who KDKA-TV identified as his father, and who had been working security at the door.

The younger Mr. Sutton got in a fight with the unidentified man when Mr. Johnson came up from behind and hit him in the head, knocking him unconscious, state police said.

Robert Sutton and Mr. Johnson then got into a fight. State police said Mr. Heyman pulled out a gun and shot the older Mr. Sutton multiple times, and Akili in the face one time while he lay unconscious.

Both suspects are known to Washington City Police, who have had "numerous encounters" with them, according to state police.
