TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Golfers at a Florida course heard gunshots Tuesday, and when they investigated, found the bodies of two female victims.

Leon County Sheriff's Office spokesman Lt. James McQuaig said the golfers spotted the bodies near Hilaman Golf Course in Tallahassee. The golfers heard two shots at about 5 p.m., he said.

"They made the discovery," McQuaig said. "They called 911 and they waited for us to get there."

The bodies were found in a grassy area between the golf course and an adjacent apartment complex, he said.

The names of the victims had not been released Tuesday night, and McQuaig didn't have their ages.

He said the golfers didn't see anyone fleeing after the shots rang out.

Autopsies on the victims were scheduled for Wednesday, he said.

The golf course is mostly lined with apartment complexes in Florida's capital city.
