INDIANAPOLIS — Two women were shot to death early Monday morning in front of an apartment building on the city's northeast side, police said.

Medics pronounced both women dead at the scene.

The Marion County Coroner's Office identified the women as Ashanti Robinson, 21, and Patrice Jones, 23.

Detectives are looking for possible suspects and the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
