LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Two men have been indicted for murder in the TARC bus shooting that killed a teenager.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Martin J. Keehn Jr., 20, and Jeffrey Kingdon, 22.  The men have not been arrested at this time and police are urging both suspects to come forward. 

"The surveillance video was very conclusive on what occurred. We've combed through it several times to try to determine what happened. I'm not going to go into details on who shot who at this point," Lt. Barry Wilkerson, LMPD, said.

17-year-old Rico Robinson Jr. was shot multiple times while he was riding a TARC bus on Route 23 on Monday afternoon.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The judge ordered that once the two suspects are taken into custody they will have a fixed, full cash bond of $500,000.

Police have not yet released a motive or how the suspects may have known the victim.

"We have individuals in place to try to locate them. Hopefully, with this getting out, they'll turn themselves in and give their side of the story," Wilkerson said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Anonymous Crime Tip line at 574-LMPD.  Both men are considered armed and dangerous.
