GARY — A 19-year-old was identified early Thursday as the man gunned down at a gas station where two possible suspects were seen on surveillance images.

Darrian D. Hill, of Gary, was shot about 4:45 p.m. Wednesday at the gas station in the 4800 block of Broadway, according to the Lake County coroner's office and police.

Gary police were dispatched for a report of shots fired and a man down, Cmdr. Jack Hamady said.

A bystander began performing CPR on Hill, but Hill died at the scene. The death was ruled a homicide.

About four hours after the shooting, Gary police released surveillance images of two possible suspects and a silver-colored car. The pair left the gas station in the car.

Hill's killing was the second homicide in two days in Gary. On Tuesday, Earl J. Dantzler, 32, of Gary, was shot to death in the 6000 block of West 36th Avenue. A dark-colored vehicle was seen leaving the scene, police said.

A total of 19 people have been killed in homicides so far this year in Gary, police and death records show.

Anyone with information about Hill's homicide is asked to call Detective Kris Adams of the Lake County/Gary Metro Homicide Unit at 219-755-3852.

Anyone with information on Dantzler's homicide is asked to call Detective Alex Jones of the Lake County/Gary Metro Homicide Unit at 219-755-3852.
