The victims of a double homicide in the Iron Triangle neighborhood Saturday have been identified as Dayton Dailey, 23, and Clarence Wallace, 20.

The men were gunned down at Fourth Street and Bissell Avenue in Richmond Saturday, the same location where 44 bullet casings were found after a shooting into an apartment building Thursday, according to police. The Thursday incident was believed to be gang related but it is not known if it was related to Saturday’s killings.

No arrests or suspect information have been reported in either shooting.
