WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Waterloo Police have identified the victims of a double shooting in Waterloo Tuesday night.

Authorities say Cederick Deshawn Matlock, 30, of Waterloo, died after being shot in the chest.

William Rashad Burt, 19, also of Waterloo, is being treated for a gunshot wound to the shoulder. 

An autopsy for Matlock is scheduled for Wednesday morning in Ankeny. No arrests have yet been made.

The two men were shot just after 6 p.m. as the victims rode their bikes into a parking lot near the Kum & Go convenience store at 1976 Franklin Street.

"We talked to anybody that's seen anything," said Lt. Monte Franna with the Waterloo Police Department. "If anybody has any information, come forward and let us know what's going on, and we'll talk to those people as well."

Earl Harmon told a KWWL news crew on scene he saw a man shoot at the two men as they rode their bikes across the street into the parking lot.

"As I looked back, I saw (the shooter) holding a silver gun in his hand just shooting at the dude as he's running across the street, and then he turned to shoot at the guy on the bike, and the guy on the bike just falls over," Harmon said. "The guy who collapsed in between the Kum & Go Gas, he's like saying, 'I've been shot! I've been shot!' and that's when I called 911."

Waterloo Director of Safety Services Dan Trelka says the department has numerous leads to sort through right now. Police say they are not prepared to name any suspects in the murder investigation. 

If you have any information regarding the case, you are asked to call Waterloo Police at 319-291-4340.
