Investigators are not releasing the names of the victims and are not yet discussing a motive for the crime or any specifics.

Neighbors said the pair often had loud arguments, but otherwise seemed friendly.

“They was good people, man. They visited. Every day they’d go by. No problem. We visited together. They’d come over, just sit around and talk. Enjoy the day,” said friend of the victim, Ambrose Whitlock.

The coroner's office was on the scene, working to determine the cause of the woman's death.  The man was taken to the hospital by helicopter.  No word on his condition.
