Jacksonville, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating a double homicide on the 1000 block of Spearing Street.
Sgt. Shawn Coarsey says police received calls about a shooting in the area around 4:00 a.m.
When investigators arrived they found a man and woman shot and killed in a yard.
Witnesses told police they heard multiple shots and a vehicle speeding away.
Police are working to get a description of that vehicle.
Sgt. Coarsey says the home where the victims were found is known to be a drug house where many people come and go. They believe that may make it more difficult for them to identify the victims.
If you have any information that may help police, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477).
