HOLBROOK, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say two men have been shot and wounded in a robbery at a home in the small eastern Arizona community of Wagon Wheel.
   
Navajo County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the reported robbery about 3 a.m. Tuesday.
   
When authorities arrived, they reported finding a 22-year-old man from Mesa with a gunshot wound to the head. He was transported by ambulance to a Holbrook-area hospital and then flown to a Phoenix hospital.
   
Authorities say a 19-year-old man from Casa Grande suffered a gunshot wound to the torso and was being treated at Summit Regional Medical Center in Show Low.
   
The names of the two wounded men aren't immediately available.
   
Sheriff's officials say they have located the suspected shooter, but it's unclear if an arrest has been made yet.
