CENTRAL ISLIP - Police say two young men were shot and killed just miles apart in Suffolk County overnight and are investigating if the two crimes are related.
Christian Jordan, of Amityville, was shot and killed when a fight broke out at about 1:30 a.m. during a house party in Central Islip.
Less than three hours after that shooting, 22-year-old Bennie Rouse, of Central Islip, was shot and killed while driving his car. Police say a vehicle pulled up next to his on Sunrise Highway in Bohemia and opened fire.
According to a post on Facebook, the two victims are cousins. Suffolk police have not confirmed whether the two victims are related or if the shootings are connected.
