Police have released the identity of the second victims killed in a shooting in Richmond Hill.

16 year old Brenda Pathammavong is from Brampton and was shot dead, while sitting in a car in a parking lot at 172 Centre Street.

Her family calls her a "selfless young woman who deeply loved her family. Although she was the youngest in the family, her family and their needs were always her first priority. Her family and friends will greatly miss Brenda's always-present bright smile, giggles, intelligence and sass."

Officers had earlier identified the other victim as 18 year old Premier Hoang from Brampton.

A third victim, a 20 year old man, continues to fight for his life in hospital.

Police say they are looking for two black men in their 20's who were last seen wearing baggy clothing. Investigators are also looking for a grey or silver coloured Honda Civic, that was last seen headed eastbound on Centre Street East.

Cops are now saying that they believe this is a drug-related crime and the suspects and victims may have known each other.

Police maintain, they don't believe this is a random act.

    It's sad and unfortunate for these young people to loose their life in this manner. The time in which this happened I believe 2:30am or something like that I heard leads me to believe it was drug related. But a 15 year old girl out on a week day at this time is disturbing. Did not the parents know she was out at this time???? Also, did these victims have criminal records and were known to police?? I'm sure these weren't innocent people just taking a drive.
