EVENDALE, OH (FOX19) - Police are continuing to investigate a rolling gun battle that took place Wednesday morning on Interstate 75.

Two people died and the interstate was shut down for over eight hours.

Police responded to a report of a crash around 2:45 a.m. When they arrived, they found two people dead in a vehicle. They have been identified as Keith Cobb, 25, and Scott Neblett Jr., also 25.

Police say the vehicle had flipped at least two times. The Hamilton County Coroner's Office has ruled that the victims died of gunshot wounds, not the crash.

Police believe it all started as a fight at a bar in Sharonville and then moved to a rolling gun battle. Police say there is evidence an assault rifle was used, and that the victims were armed as well, but it's unclear if they fired any shots.

The suspect's car, which is believed to be a silver Dodge Caliber, was found Wednesday evening and taken to a garage at the Evendale Police Department.

Police may release more information on Thursday.
