TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa Police have identified two persons of interest in double murder at an east Tulsa motel.

Police said they are looking for Charles "CJ" Johnson, 19, and Frankie Holiday, 20. 

Officers received the call just before 11:00 p.m. Thursday at the Days Inn near Admiral and Sheridan.  They found 23-year-old Joey Deon Mike and 19-year-old Jermiko Thomas shot to death inside one of the motel rooms.

A third victim, 20-year-old Toni Ruff, found inside the room was taken to the hospital. As of late Friday night, Ruff was listed in critical condition. 

Tulsa Police said the shooting may be drug-related.

"The one male victim has had a troubled past and so I think that might be coming into play a little bit as far as some activities he was involved in," said Mike Huff, Tulsa Police Major Crimes. "The young women, we're wondering if they just happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time."

Joey Mike was a suspect in a fatal shooting in Tulsa in January of this year,.  Mike told officers the shooting of a 45-year-old man was an act of self defense.
