Police investigating double homicide after 2 found dead in Greensboro

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A double homicide investigation is underway after two people were found dead in Greensboro early Tuesday morning, according to police.

Police went to a home in the 2000 block of Cedar Fork Drive at about 4:05 a.m. in reference to a shooting. Though the initial call came in as a shooting, the cause of death is unknown at this time.

Captain Davis with the Greensboro Police Department says police responded to a domestic call at the home on Monday afternoon, but police are not sure if that is related to their investigation.

Matthew McCray lives across the street from where the homicides took place. He says he hasn’t seen anything like this has happened in the area before.

“I'm praying for the family,” McCray said. “I mean we really have to pray. This is getting ridiculous and for me seeing it on the news is enough, but having it this close to me where I lay my head every morning it's really got to be serious. We’ve really got to come together and say ‘let's stop the violence.’”

Cedar Fork Drive reopened between Isler Street and South Holden Road around 5:00 p.m. when investigators cleared the scene.
