Seminole County, GA - A house along the 5000 block of River Road in Seminole County is now the center of a double homicide investigation.
Deputies with the Seminole County Sheriff's Office say they received a call around 7:00 Sunday evening about gunfire and when they arrived at the house they found two men with multiple gun shot wounds.
Detectives with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation say they're not releasing the identities of two victims at this time, because they still have not been able to notify one of their families.
Investigators say they do have a suspect in the shootings, but that they have not yet made an arrest or pressed any charges. They say it's still too early in the investigation for them to know the exact motive, but that it appears there was some type of altercation leading up the shooting.
While we were at the crime scene, a man and a woman arrived at the residence. We reached out to them for a comment about the shootings, however both of them said they did not have anything to say at this time.
