Police say they arrived on-scene shortly before 3 p.m. and discovered two victims suffering from gunshot wounds.
The men were both pronounced dead at the scene.
It is believed the fatal incident stemmed from an argument but no other information was immediately made available.
The sister of the victims, Macshaunya Wright, said she raced to the scene after hearing news of a shooting involving her brothers:
“They were good young men, striving to be better and help add to the positivity of our community. It’s just sad that we can’t handle our issues and problems without resorting to violence. We should be able to talk about things. I wanted to be able to hug my brother or at least say goodbye with my mom and my sisters and my brothers, but they wouldn’t let us do that. Just seeing the body bag was closure enough for me. I heard it was something as silly as a female making a call and some females pulled up in a car that was tinted and shot at my brothers and pulled off,” said Wright. source
Wright said there are 11 kids in her family.
“We all love each other and this hurts because all of us are affected. It’s violence that’s very unnecessary. We should learn how to communicate and not always have to resort to guns. They were good young men. They were trying to change their lives. My brother Justin, I know he prayed and he was trying, and my other brother, he was on the path, trying to get it right too — and to take that from somebody for something dumb, it’s silly. I pray that we all turn to our faith, our God and just handle stuff differently,” said Wright.
The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact police at 911.
