Schroeder said police were not ready to release the names of the victims as investigation continues.

The other victim was taken to Pitt Memorial Hospital.

"He was in pretty serious condition," Schroeder said.

Detective Sgt. C.J. Weaver was working the case this morning, and was interviewing people with interest in the case.

Police were not sure yet of a motive for the shootings.
