NORFOLK -- Responding to a call from a concerned citizen, Norfolk Police discovered the bodies of two deceased adults inside a home in the 200 block of Portview Ave.

Neighbors tell 13News Now they heard screams coming from a home followed by a burst of gunfire.

“I heard gunshots, maybe about three or four,” said Shonia Gregory, who lives next door. “And then I hear somebody say, ‘Oh My God, somebody help me!’ And then [I hear] another round of gunfire go off.”

Gregory says a three month old baby was inside the home when she heard the gunshots.

“I saw family members crying, the grandmother has the infant and then the husband and wife are deceased unfortunately. And it makes everybody on edge.”

Detectives are working the investigation as a homicide. 

No other information about the two victims was provided. 

Their bodies were being taken to the Medical Examiner's Office to determine their cause of death.

No suspect information was available.
