Authorities are releasing the identities of the two men who were killed when a gunman opened fire at an off-campus college party in Texas.

The Hunt County Sheriff's Office said Monday that the two men killed were 23-year-old Kevin Berry Jr. of Dallas and 23-year-old Byron Craven Jr. of Arlington.

The suspected gunman, who hasn't been identified, remains on the loose after the shooting around midnight Saturday.

Authorities said the gathering was a Halloween and homecoming party for Texas A&M University-Commerce, though officials said it was not a school-sanctioned event.

Authorities said that of the 12 people injured, six were shot and six were trampled or hurt by glass.
