Police are blaming gang activity for a double murder in Central Fresno Friday night.Eddie Randolph and Teddrick Colbert were shot to death at the Casa Velasco Apartments on Fruit near Ashlan just after 11 last Friday night.

You can see the bullet holes left behind on this Chevy Tahoe; Police said it was probably rival gang members who opened fire on the SUV just outside the apartment's front gates.

The two men went to the hospital, but doctors pronounced them dead a little while later.

Colbert's sister said, despite reports that it was gang related; her brother was a good person.

Candida Fierro, victim's sister said "The driver was my brother and not only was he my brother, he was an uncle, a son, a nephew, a husband and what happened here is unjust and we believe he was set up, by who we don't know"

Police don't have any suspects in this case, but eyewitnesses say they saw a small, dark car leaving the scene right after the shooting.
