MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — Investigators are still looking for answers — and suspects — regarding double homicide Saturday morning in Middletown.

The Butler County Coroner's Office identified 25-year-old Daniel Fitzgerald as one of two men killed at the Middletown home. Our partners at the Journal-News identified the other victim as 25-year-old Marvin Davis.

Around 3:30 a.m. on Feb. 4, officers responded to the 700 block of 15th Avenue for the report of two people shot, Middletown police said. When they arrived, they found two people with gunshot wounds.

The Butler County Coroner's Office identified 25-year-old Daniel Fitzgerald as one of two men killed at the Middletown home. Our partners at the Journal-News identified the other victim as 25-year-old Marvin Davis.

Fitzgerald was pronounced dead at the scene and Davis was transported to the Atrium Medical Center where he died, investigators said.

Middletown Police Chief David Birk said detectives continue to follow up on leads, seek and execute search warrants for cell phones and electronics and gather doorbell cameras from neighbors.

Journal-News also reported that the security camera from Bar II — where the roommates frequented — is also under review, but police have no indication there was a problem at the bar.

Birk said there was no evidence of forced entry at the home or any indication of the two men firing in self-defense.

The chief said one of the men called 911 and could be heard saying "please come help me, I don't want to die."

Anyone with information regarding the shooting is asked to call Middletown detective Ken Mynheir at 513-425-7720 or 513-425-7700.
