According to police, two people were found shot inside a vehicle in the 8100-block of McGuire Drive at approximately 11:07 p.m.

The neighborhood is off of Perry Creek Road just north of the U.S. 1 and the Interstate 540 interchange.

The two victims found inside the vehicle were dead when authorities arrived on scene.

The victims have been identified as Teleah Janae Richmond, 27, and Taferious Traquail Cannady, 24.

One neighbor said this isn’t something that really happens in the area.
