By Tim Jimenez

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police say a shooting in South Philadelphia left two people dead Sunday morning.

It happened around 9:30 a.m. inside of a home on the 2400 block of South Hutchinson Street, just south of Ritner Street.

Police say the unidentified victims — a man and a woman, both in their 20s — were pronounced dead at the scene, not long after investigators arrived.

Authorities say they recovered a gun and are now looking for two suspects, both men, who fled on foot going South on Hutchinson Street.

The first suspect is described as wearing all black clothing. The second suspect is described as wearing a black hat and shirt and tan cargo shorts.

Police continue to investigate, but so far there is no word on what led to the shooting.
