Two people are dead after a double shooting in West Augustine Saturday.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said the shooting happened around 10 a.m. on the 600 block of W. King Street (King Food Mart) and involved only two men.

Chuck Mulligan with SJSO says it started after the two got into an argument with each other.

Investigators learned that the two men first got into a "digital argument" and agreed to meet at the store where they proceeded to have a verbal argument, then shot at each other.

When authorities arrived on the scene, they found one person dead. They identified him as 25-year-old Canyon  Molitor. The other individual, identified as 30-year-old Elroi Ashley suffered from gunshot wounds. He was transported to Flagler Hospital by a friend and later died.
