ARDMORE, OK - Ardmore Police now say they are looking to question four men who are persons of interest in two separate shootings over the past two days that left two people dead.

Capt. Kevin Norris said in a media release Monday afternoon the four persons of interest are Ricky Gene McGee Jr., Juaren Dezaun McGee Sr., Rodney Marquis Cohee and Dimitri Levoy Washington III. They're wanted for questioning in two homicides, the first of which occurred early Sunday morning.

Volonte Anderson was shot dead outside the Allstarz Sports Bar on South Commerce early Sunday morning.

Then around 7 o'clock Monday morning, police were called to a home in the 900 block of A Street Northeast when a motorist passing by discovered 59-year-old Ella Loftis dead on her porch from multiple gun shot wounds.

Police said Monday afternoon they are not ruling out that the two shootings may be related.

If you have any information on either of these crimes or on the whereabouts of these four men, you're asked to call the Ardmore Police Department at 580-223-1212.

We'll have more on this tonight on News 12.
