The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called to the area and found two men suffering from gunshot wounds.

Both victims were taken to a hospital, where one of them died Tuesday night, according to deputies, who said the other man died overnight.

Authorities later identified the victims as Dillion Paul, 17, and Kevin Harper III, 18.

According to investigators, one of the victims crashed a car into a home on Decatur Street after he was shot. No one inside the home was injured.

Rodger Sevven, who owns the rental property that was damaged in the crash, said he was shocked to hear the news.

“I never thought anything like this would happen,” Sevven said. “I saw a car that was apparently driven through the front door of the house.”

Sevven said one of the shooting victims apparently jumped into a car and ended up crashing into the home he owns.

“They ran a pretty significant speed into the building,” he said.

No other details, including what led to the shooting, have been released.
