The two men were taken into custody after officers located them Wednesday at 4:25 p.m. in a car on the 3100 block of Floyd Blvd.

Two other subjects were in the car and were detained as part of the investigation. They were later released without charges.

The fatal shooting happened on Jan. 1 in the 2600 block of Walker Street in Sioux City where several individuals opened fire on a residence with 9mm handguns and an assault-style rifle. Kritis died due to injuries received during the incident, while three other people were struck by gunfire and are recovering from the wounds they received.

Detectives say they are not seeking any additional suspects but are still looking for people that were at the party at the time of the shooting and anyone else with information.
