They said that they have no information so far about who they are or what led up to the shooting. They also did not provide any information about whether they are searching for any possible suspects.
However, as of Monday, police are asking the public if there were any eyewitnesses who saw something happen on Colonial Drive between 2 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, between Maguire Boulevard and Hampton Avenue.
Joyce Lien lives just down the street. She told FOX 35 that "I was kind of awake at three o'clock, either. I didn't even hear any sirens."
She added that "having two deaths that close is really unusual, but any more... nothing surprises you."
At this point, police said this is an open and active investigation. They kept Colonial Drive from Hamptom to Bumby Avenues closed while gathering evidence and processing the car. It reopened shortly after 11 a.m.
Lien said she has never seen anything like this before, citing that "it's really kind of quiet."
