VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) -- Two men suspected of a fatal shooting in Vancouver appeared in Clark County Superior Court Wednesday and were ordered held for investigation of murder.

Deputy Prosecutor Kasey Vu said the shooting was the result of a drug deal gone bad. Bail was set at $500,000 for 21-year-old Jonathan Hensley and $750,000 for 19-year-old Shawn Fortner. They are scheduled to be arraigned Feb. 19

The body of 21-year-old Craig Moritz was found about 3 a.m. Tuesday along Vancouver Mall Drive.

The Columbian reports the scene was five blocks east of where two women were killed Jan. 19 by a hit-and-run driver.
