Two people were killed and four others were injured early Saturday in a shooting in Gary, Ind.

Gary, Ind. Police Chief Wade Ingram said police responded to a call of shots fired around 4 a.m. in the 9300 block of Sunrise Boulevard and discovered six people had been shot.

Two men killed in the shooting were identified as Vincent Wainwright, 32, who was pronounced dead at the scene and 18-year-old Da’Vaughn Pitts, who was pronounced dead at a hospital, officials said.

Ingram said the shooting may have stemmed from an earlier disturbance, but said the matter was still under investigation.

Police continue to interview mutliple witness, according to Ingram.

“It’s been a quiet block, quiet neighborhood,” Ingram said.
