Prichard police are working a double homicide investigation after two people inside a parked car were fatally shot Wednesday afternoon.
Two suspects in a vehicle approached West Main Street around 2 p.m. Wednesday and fired multiple shots, hitting the two victims, who died of their injuries, said the lead detective in the case, according to footage from WPMI.
The suspects then drove away from the scene and down Highway 45 when a 911 caller lost sight of the vehicle, the detective said.
A witness in the case described the suspects to police as two Black males wearing dark colored clothing.
Police believe the suspects were in a 2005-2008 model Toyota Camry with faded gold paint. The vehicle was also missing a right taillight.
The detective called on the public to submit tips on the vehicle to police.
“That car is going to be crucial to our investigation,” he said.
