ORANGE (AP) — Authorities say at least two of three men found in a burning car in Orange County last week were shot.

The county coroner’s office on Wednesday identified two of the men as having been reported missing last week in Arizona: 19-year-old Antonio Medina of Glendale and 20-year-old Fernando Meza of Phoenix.

Police identified the third man as 26-year-old Edgar Berrelleza-Soto of Orange, according to the Orange County Register.

Lt. Fred Lopez says Medina and Berrelleza-Soto were shot to death.

Meza’s cause of death is under investigation.

The bodies were found in a burning GMC Yukon that rolled to a stop outside a home in Orange on Nov. 9. The driver’s seat was empty.

Police haven’t identified any suspects and are trying to determine a motive for the killings.
