Bystanders noted that the vehicle crashed into a pole around 11:45 p.m. on Monday, Fox 59 reported.

Responding authorities discovered two people, both with serious gunshot wounds, unresponsive inside the vehicle with a firearm reportedly on the lap of one of the passengers.

The Marion County Coroner’s Office identified the slain victims as Eric Colvin, 18, and Justice Wills, 22. Police came across shell casings behind the car, believing the shooting ensued along Woodsmall Drive.

“Witnesses preliminarily told us that the vehicle appeared to be just kind of moving down the road on its own. You know... struck the curb a couple of times then struck a light pole,” IMPD Nightwatch Commander Kerry Buckner said. Authorities are still investigating the mysterious circumstances of the shooting.
