Two men were injured in a shooting at Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana on Sunday, authorities said.

The men were drinking beer at a grave site when another group of people arrived in a gray sport utility vehicle, said Cpl. Anthony Bertagna of the Santa Ana Police Department. An argument between the groups escalated to a fistfight and then the shooting, he said.

Paramedics were called to the cemetery at 1702 Fairhaven Avenue about 12:20 p.m., said Capt. Steve Concialdi of the Orange County Fire Authority. The two men in their 20s were taken to a nearby hospital in moderate condition, he said.

Witnesses refused to cooperate with police, and detectives are struggling to identify suspects, Bertagna said.
