Baltimore police have identified two men who were fatally shot Friday while they sat in a sport utility vehicle at a Northwest Baltimore intersection.

Quinton Hogan, 23, of the first block of Solar Circle in Parkville and Donell Rogers, 21, of the 2600 block of Ashland Ave. were shot as they sat in a black Jeep Cherokee at Wabash and Rogers avenues about 9:45 a.m., police spokeswoman Nicole Monroe said.

The Jeep was stopped at a traffic light in the southbound lane of Wabash when a small white sedan pulled up next to it and gunfire erupted, police said.

Police said that Hogan, the driver of the Jeep, tried to pull away and struck a small car driven by a 75-year-old woman. The vehicles hit a utility pole, knocking down live electrical wires, which slowed the process of removing Rogers' body from the Jeep.

Rogers was pronounced dead at the scene and Hogan was taken to Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later, police said. The woman was treated for minor injuries and released.

No arrests had been made in connection with the shooting and no motive was known, police said.
