The first victim, who was shot and killed near the playground of Snow Hinton Park off McFarland Boulevard Saturday night, has been officially identified as 21-year-old Lorenzo Deairos Graham.

The second victim was found dead at the Legacy at Country Club Apartments around 3 p.m. Sunday. He has now been officially identified as 23-year-old Kortnei Kelvontae Mills.

The Violent Crimes Unit, which is made up of investigators from four local law enforcement agencies, has taken over both cases.

Kennedy said at this time both investigations are active, as officers interview potential witnesses and persons of interest.
