A murder investigation is underway in the South Valley Sunday.

Tulare County Sheriff's Deputies say someone shot at two men in their car near the Woodville Labor Camp on Road 192 at Avenue 160.

CHP officers stopped the vehicle for a traffic violation a short time later. That's when they found 34-year-old Osevio Lopez in the driver's seat with a gunshot wound to the head. He later died at the hospital.

A man in his twenties in the passenger seat was also shot, but has now been released from the hospital.

Detectives are still searching for suspects.
