IRVINGTON - Essex County authorities have identified the two men found dead inside an Irvington home yesterday.

The men have been identified as Shanser Singh, 24, and Satnam Singh, 38. The prosecutor's office says that both victims died from stab wounds and their deaths have been ruled homicides by the medical examiner. Both victims were originally from India and there is no indication that the men were related to each other.

Acting County Prosecutor Carolyn Murray says city police officers found the men when they responded to the two-family residence around noon. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Irvington Police Director Joseph Santiago says the men appear to have been targeted. Their bodies were reportedly found in an upstairs apartment area of the home on 600 block of Chancellor Avenue.

The incident remains under active investigation by the Essex County Homicide Task Force, which is also asking for the public's help. Anyone with information should contact the Essex County Homicide Task Force at 877-847-7432.
