EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Evansville police are investigating a double homicide.

It happened at Lodge Food Mart near Riverside Drive around 7:40 p.m. on Wednesday.

When officers arrived, they say they found two men dead with gunshot wounds.

The Vanderburgh County Coroner’s Office identified the two as 28-year-old Nicholas Fenwick and 33-year-old Brett Coulson.

Authorities received a 911 call from a person who said he had shot one of the men.

We’re told that he turned himself in and was interviewed by detectives.

During the interview, he said he was at the parking lot of 2100 Lodge Avenue in his truck when he saw two men arguing.

The bystander told officers one of the men drew a gun and fired several shots into the air. Then he allegedly saw the man fatally shoot the other.

According to EPD, Fenwick was the one who shot Coulson.

They say when the bystander saw this, he got out of his car and told Fenwick to drop his gun.

The bystander told authorities Fenwick refused. When that happened, he said he shot Fenwick out of fear.

Fenwick then ran behind the building and the bystander left the parking lot and called 911.

Officials tell us that officers were already en route to the scene for a shots fired call. They say they were on scene when the bystander called and told them what happened.

Authorities tell us he was very cooperative and a witness verified his statement.

Officers also say the bystander had a permit to carry.

The investigation is still active and no arrests have been made at this time.

Officials tell us it is still too early in the investigation to determine if any charges will be filed.

Autopsies for Fenwick and Coulson men are currently being scheduled.
