Two people found dead in a vehicle outside Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis last week were shot in the head, according to a report from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office.
The victims, Presley L.C. Taylor Jr., 51, and Nicole S. Columbus, 34, both of Minneapolis, were identified by the medical examiner's office on Tuesday.
They were found in a vehicle parked on the sidewalk on the east side of the 4000 block of S. 28th Ave. Police had responded to the scene at 10:42 p.m. Valentine's Day on a report of a shooting.
Police said medical personnel evaluated a third person in the vehicle and police interviewed them. It's unclear if the person was injured in the incident.
