Authorities identified the victims who died in a double-homicide in Bloomfield.

Law enforcement identified the two men who died as 77-year-old Curtis Strom and 49-year-old William Reffett.

Bloomfield Police Department requested the Nebraska State Patrol investigate the incident.

The investigation indicated that Alias Reed is responsible for both murders.

The initial investigation showed that Reed went to the bowling alley Tuesday morning with a shotgun and started an argument with Reffett.  Authorities said Reed shot Reffett moments later, and also shot Strom who was not involved in the argument.

Shortly after the incident, Reed left the bowling alley.

NSP reportedly found the shotgun, during the investigation, that was believed to be used during the homicide.

The shotgun was reportedly found in a ditch on a county road several miles west of Bloomfield.

Law enforcement said they believe that both Reed and his girlfriend, Kaylyne Sweazy, traveled to that location to dispose of the gun.

Reed has been arrested for two counts of first-degree murder. Law enforcement said he will also be charged with robbery after money was found that was stolen from the bowling alley.

Sweazy has been arrested for tampering with evidence.

Law enforcement have not been able to determine motive at this time.

This is an ongoing investigation.
