At approximately 11:37 p.m. Tuesday, officers were dispatched to the 600 block of Sixth Street following reports of gunshots. According to the NPD, a group approached a home and fired shots before driving away.

Two female victims were found deceased at the scene. The deceased victims have been identified as Demi Galvin, 15 years of age and Yasmeen Scott, 18 years of age – both of Niles. Three males were found with gunshot wounds and were taken to South Bend Memorial Hospital.
