INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Police identified Indianapolis’s latest two homicide victims on Wednesday.

Tyrece Dorsey, 23, and William Davis, 25, were killed in a shooting Tuesday night.

It happened just after 7 p.m. at a Citgo gas station parking lot at 19th Street and North Rural Street in Indianapolis. One of the men was shot and killed next to a car parked at the gas station. The other was taken to a local hospital and  later died.
