Investigators are looking for multiple suspects, as well as witnesses and video, police said.

The names of the victims have not been released but one resident at 390 Dawes Rd., out walking her dog the next day, said she had been talking with one of the young men the day before.

“He was friendly and said he was thinking of getting a small dog like mine,” she said. “Then next thing I heard he had been shot.”

The double shooting in her building left her “feeling depressed,” she said.

Police are asking anyone with information, video or dash cam footage to contact them.
