At approximately 2:20 a.m. on May 22, 2022, officers responded to the area of 30th and P Street after a man called 911 to report he had been shot.  Responding officers were directed to a residence where both men were located.  Life saving measures were attempted, however they succumbed to their injuries.  Shortly after the initial 911 call, 19-year-old Jose Soto arrived at a local hospital with a gunshot wound sustained at the same residence.  Soto was treated and left the hospital a short time later.
