PONCA CITY, Okla. (AP) _ Two Osage County men are dead after a shooting east of Ponca City.

Kurt Miller, 57, died in his home in the McCord area after Friday morning's shooting.

The second man, John Henry Pitzer, 32, of Ponca City -- died at Via Christi Oklahoma Regional Medical Center in Ponca City, Osage County Sheriff Wes Penland said.

Investigators are unsure if the two men shot each other, or if one shot himself after shooting the other, Penland said.

Two handguns were found at the scene.

Penland said investigators think Pitzer entered Miller's home Friday morning and the two had a disagreement, possibly about a past rental deal.

Miller rented Pitzer a mobile home behind his house, Penland said.
