When deputies arrived, they found two men in their 20s dead inside the vehicle.
According to Eric Curry, the Public Information Officer for the Wake County Sheriff's Office, the two victims appeared to be in the car for some time, as early as 4:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Witnesses said the men may have ventured out to a recording studio in the early morning hours and returned back to the Topping Lane area to drop off a third person and that may have been when the shooting happened.
Both ends of Topping Lane are blocked as the investigation continues.
