Phoenix police have identified the suspects from a deadly double shooting in Phoenix. 

Officers were called to an apartment complex near 19th and Glendale avenues around 12:20 a.m. Monday where a shooting was reported. 

Police found two men, 26-year-old Lual Deng and 52-year-old Wol Ding in the parking lot with gunshot wounds. One of the men died at the scene. The other died at the hospital. 

Phoenix police said the two deceased men were in an ongoing dispute with a 30-year-old victim in the area. The victim was aware of the possible confrontation and asked his two friends to assist him. 

When the men gathered, a fight occurred and gunfire was exchanged. 

Later in the day, the victim's friends met with detectives at police headquarters. One of the men sustained non-life threatening gunshot injury during the exchange.

Both men were prohibited to carry firearms due to prior convictions. The suspects were booked into jail for misconduct involving weapons. They have been identified as 32-year-old Lloyd Lambert and 30-year-old Devane Lambert.
