Two men were found dead of gunshot wounds at an apartment in the NoDa area. Officers were called around 11:30 p.m. for a report of gunfire at 420 Hilo Drive, off North Tryon Street.  One man was found in an apartment stairwell, the other just inside a doorway.  Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
