Officers have identified the victims as 27-year-old Michael Whitfield and 22-year-old Lorenzo Clark, Jr.

Detectives detained six people who were running out of the home shortly after the shooting and separated them for questioning. Officers have not made any arrests or named any suspects.

Neither victim in Friday morning’s shooting appeared to live in the home. The police report indicated that Clark’s father may have been at the home at the time of the shooting.

Neighbors said the house has been a hub of criminal activity for some time. A check of police records by FOX59 found IMPD reports for the address dating back to 2010 that include incidents such as the recovery of a stolen vehicle, criminal activity with firearms, cocaine possession, a warrant for child support, an attack involving an ax and a fight.
