ALLENTOWN, Pa. - The search is on for the person who shot and killed two men in Allentown.

Two men were gunned down at the intersection of 4th and Washington in broad daylight Tuesday. It's the second deadly daytime shooting in the city in two weeks.

The Lehigh County coroner's office identified the victims as Richard Vera Jr., 28, and Keith Minick, 24.

Both were taken to the hospital where they were pronounced dead. The coroner ruled their deaths a homicide.

A neighbor across the street said investigators are looking at everything to find the shooter.

"They started to check the security footage in the basement and told me to get out," said Carlos Malavet.

Detectives also went door to door speaking with others in the neighborhood.

Autopsies on the men are scheduled for Wednesday.
