Todd James Webb Jr., 14, and Brian Davis, 18, were pronounced dead on the scene.
The high school students died after someone opened fire on the 6800 block of Walker Mill Road, in the parking lot of the apartment complex where Webb lived.
Police arrived about 2:45 a.m. Webb and Davis were dead, one man has life-threatening injuries, another person still is hospitalized with less serious injuries and two other people were treated at a hospital and released, police said.
