BAY SHORE - A man and woman were fatally shot as they walked along a Bay Shore street Friday night, Suffolk police say.

The shots rang out shortly before 9:30 p.m. Investigators say David Arzu, 29, of Bay Shore, and Janelle Curella, 28, of Manorville, were walking on Center Avenue near Oak Street when they were shot.

The two were taken by ambulance to Southside Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.

No arrests have been made at this time. Police say it's unclear if the two victims were the intended targets.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
