MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -

Muskogee police are asking for help to finding two men they say are connected to a quadruple shooting Tuesday night at at a Muskogee apartment complex.

Two of the victims died, the other two are in the hospital. 

Police identified one of the murder victims as 19-year-old Malski Hill.

Hill was life-flighted from the apartment complex and taken to a Tulsa hospital.

"That's kind of getting scary for something like that to happen over here,” said former resident Joseph Bryson.

He said he lived at the Southpoint apartment complex in Muskogee for years. He says the four people who were hurt last night were shot just feet from where he used to live.

Bryson says this isn’t the first homicide at the complex and claims another person was killed last year. On Monday, he moved out for fear of his safety. 

"It's crazy! We had no problem at all here lately, and we started having young kids moving in and stuff, and it just kind of went down hill,” Bryson added. 

Muskogee Police say TUesday night's shooting happened before 10 p.m. at the apartment complex on South York Street. 

They say four men were shot. One of those men died at the apartment, and another died at the hospital.

Police say the other two men were also shot and taken to the hospital. Their conditions are unknown. 

Officer Lynn Hamlin says this shooting is out of the ordinary.

“What's unusual is that it's a double homicide - so we don't normally have a situation that I've see for individuals that have been shot on one scene,” Hamlin told News On 6. 

Hamlin says now their task is finding out what happened and trying to catch two men who are on the run. 

"Unfortunately when there's so much involved with so many people being shot and so many individuals that need to be interviewed. We will be working all day today,” Hamlin explained. 

Police believe the two men, who are on currently the run, are armed and dangerous.
