BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office have arrested two men and are looking for a third in connection to a double homicide that happened on May 18, 2014 on Gardere Ln.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office reported the shooting happened at an apartment on Gardere Lane at Ned Avenue in Baton Rouge.

The victims were identified as Orok Ironbar, 32, and Russell Celestin, 31, both of Baton Rouge.

She added Celestin was rushed to the hospital, but later died from his injuries.

Witnesses reported sheriff's deputies started arriving in the area just after midnight.

"We received a call around 10 p.m. about shots fired in the area. The shot spotter went off, but it was for a different address," said Hicks. "Deputies questioned residents in the apartment complex and were told that they did not hear gunshots. The victims' roommate arrived home around midnight and found them shot.
