The incident occurred on August 2nd and was reported to authorities at or about 12:15 a.m. Chief Mike Koval says the incident was a targeted shooting.

Police say two suspects wearing masks walked up to the victims, pointed their guns at point blank range and began shooting. At least 10 shell casings were recovered at the scene.
