Two men were killed and several others injured during a large brawl outside a northern New Jersey bar early Saturday. Union County prosecutors say it's not clear what sparked the fight in Elizabeth, which started in a strip mall parking lot shortly before 4 a.m.

Police soon responded and found 30-year-old Luis Mesa and 27-year-old Daniel Torres, both of Elizabeth, had been shot outside the El Buen Gusto bar. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene at 4:20 a.m., but further details - including what type of gun was used and how many times the men were shot - were not immediately disclosed.

Several other people apparently involved in the brawl were taken to nearby hospitals with minor injuries, but prosecutors say none of them were shot.
