COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Two men found dead inside a parked car in Columbus that police say someone was trying to light on fire have been identified.

Officers were called to the scene late Monday night for a report of a man trying to light a rag on fire that was shoved inside the gas tank of a parked car. Police on Tuesday identified the two men found unresponsive inside the car as 22-year-old Caleb Jordan Killen and 22-year-old Jawuan Lamont Wade Reynolds.

Police say Killen and Reynolds were pronounced dead at the scene.
