INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police believe a 20-year-old’s death might be connected to the murder of his girlfriend.

20-year-old Evans Johnson was killed Wednesday after his body was found in an alley with apparent gunshot wounds.

His girlfriend, 21-year-old Jessica Downey, was also killed Wednesday night, just hours before her boyfriend.

Downey was found slumped in her car with an apparent gunshot wound. She was transported to the hospital but died from her injuries Thursday afternoon.

Police believe the two cases are connected.

No suspect information has been released.
