Volcy was pronounced dead on a grassy area near in the 100 block of Belmont Parkway at 1:11 p.m.; Fede was found by the car and pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m. at Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow.

After the shootings, police sat outside the home in a 12-hour siege that yielded no arrests.

Authorities on Friday released photographs of the two victims but otherwise have provided no other details, including a possible motive or why Volcy and Fede were outside the Belmont Parkway home.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477. All calls will be kept confidential.
