Couple found shot to death in Hyde Park; police say they were targeted
UPDATE: Two men charged with the murders.
On arrival officers were met by a community member who reported hearing shots fired from the first floor of the apartment building. Officers entered the apartment and located a male victim in his thirties and a 24 year old female victim suffering from trauma and what appear to be gunshot wounds. Officers immediately summonsed EMS to the scene. Upon arrival, EMS pronounced both victims deceased. In addition, officers located a male child asleep and unharmed in the apartment.
The preliminary investigation does not indicate forced entry and the incident does not appear to be random.
This is the first murder on Hyde Park Avenue since a pizza delivery driver was stabbed to death, allegedly by a group of teenagers, at an abandoned house last September.
