RICHMOND, Va. -- Police released the names of the man and woman found dead in a South Richmond apartment Monday night.

Saquenta Dixon, 26, and Andre Todd, 26, were found in the Meadow Creek Apartment they shared, police said. The apartment complex is located along the
5300 block of Hull Street. A baby found in the apartment was unharmed.

"There is no suspect information to release at this time," a Richmond Police spokeswoman said Tuesday morning.

Neighbors said they heard five or six gunshots at about 10:47 p.m. Monday.

"Whatever happened in there it wasn't normal and this community is real quiet," neighbor Jay Mack said. "But carrying a baby out. It hurt my heart just to see that. The baby is living, but just to have a baby in the surrounding of that, it wasn't too good."

K-9 units, a crime lab and a search plane were used following the shooting.

"Right now we have the homicide detectives and they are going to pursue it from the homicide aspect," Richmond Police Captain Martin Harrison said. "We have our forensic unit and they are going to collect whatever evidence they can collect out here on the street and inside the apartment."

If you have any tips in this case call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.

This is a developing story.
