The piercing sound of gunfire ripped through a Citrus Heights neighborhood early Wednesday morning, and sent people scrambling to their phones calling police for help.
Police say when they arrived, they found a man and woman dead in their car, they had been shot to death.
Throughout the morning, investigators combed the scene on Birdcage Street, just south of Greenback Lane, gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses.
Off camera, some told FOX40 they saw two vehicles driving curiously slow toward the direction of where the shooting occurred, the same vehicles then were seen speeding away from the scene by other witnesses.
Police say witnesses described a light-colored sedan and a white pick-up truck speeding away from the scene.
Anyone with information about this incident, and anything suspicious in this area, is asked to call Citrus Heights Police Department 916-727-5500.
