Homicide 1600 block of Citadel
This morning right at 6am officers were dispatched to an apartment in the 1600 block of citadel on sounds of a disturbance. Callers heard the sounds of a verbal altercation then what sounded like gunshots.
When officers arrived they were directed into an apartment where they located two people unresponsive that appeared to have been shot.
EMS responded and declared both victims (an adult male and adult female) deceased at the scene.
There is no information on suspect(s) description at this time. Detectives are canvassing for witnesses to hopefully gather more information. Crime scene investigators are processing the scene for evidence to get a better idea of what led to the disturbance.
This is a large apartment complex and many people may have been just waking up when this occurred. Detectives are hopeful that people may have seen or heard something, no matter how small that may help.
If anyone has any information they are asked to call the Homicide Unit directly at 234-5043 or the TIPS Hotline anonymously at 474-TIPS. There is a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to an arrest.
