Two men, wanted in connection with a fatal campsite shooting over the holiday weekend, are behind bars tonight.

Pershing County Sheriff's Officers arrested Matt Hutchinson and Nick Andrews, both 18, at their Winnemucca homes today. They are both facing first-degree murder and felony burglary charges.

George Moritz of Winnemucca, 19, was camping with friends in Sonoma Canyon near the Humboldt-Pershing County Line when investigators say he was shot once in the neck and killed. They say it happened on Saturday morning while Moritz was inside his tent.

No one else was hurt during the incident.
