Authorities on Monday evening were investigating the shooting death of one man and the wounding of another behind a U.S. post office in Canyon Country.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, where one was pronounced dead, Deputy Lillian Peck said. The identities of the victims were not released.

Witnesses who reported the shooting in the 18300 block of Soledad Canyon Road told sheriff’s investigators from the Santa Clarita Station that they saw three men running from the scene about 3:10 p.m.

Two teenage suspects  have been detained, Peck said.

Detectives asked anyone with information to call the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station at (661) 255-1121.
