According to police, the shooting happened during a home invasion.

After interviewing the people in the house, no one has been arrested.

But the family says the men were lured there for a party and they had never been in any kind of trouble before.

The man who raised Stewart and Porter says police need to investigate further.

“The night these shootings happened and the investigation and the preliminary results, so far, almost make me feel like my boys were stereotyped,” said Michael Porter, the victims’ father.

 The family says detectives still consider the case open.

Hot Springs police did ask for information from the public when they announced there would be no arrests.
