An infant was also found in the apartment but was unharmed.
Police said the investigation is still "very active" and witness statements are being taken.
Preliminary information indicates the shooting was the result of a home invasion. Investigators believe an unknown suspect entered the home and a struggle ensued, which resulted in multiple shots being fired.
The suspects were identified as Marshon Diming, 29, and Jamoni Deming, 27. Diming is wanted for murder.
One man, who did not want to show his face on camera because of fear of retaliation was friends with Gipson, one of the victims killed.
“His death is definitely a loss to the community, he was well respected, he was a hard worker and he would do what he was supposed to do,” he said.
When FOX13 emailed police, they said they are still speaking with witnesses and attempting to gather information.
