Police have identified the two men killed in a double shooting in New Haven on Tuesday night.

Arriving officers found two victims, who both had been shot multiple times in chest. Police said 24-year-old Dyshant Levi Mclean, of Hamden, died at the scene. 

The second victim, identified as 36-year-old Tyree McCrea of New Haven, was rushed to Yale-New Haven Hospital where he died an hour later. 

Assistant Chief Achilles Generoso said investigators believe the victims "were targeted and the shootings were not random."
