HENRICO, Va. -- Two teenagers were found dead in their Henrico apartment on Tuesday night, according to police.

Police identified the teenagers as 18-year-old Aureon R. Evans, of Richmond, and 19- year- old Antoine M. Hill, of Henrico.

"The victims knew one another, and their respective families have been notified," a Henrico Police spokesperson wrote in an email. "The Division is still classifying this as a death investigation of two adults."

Just after 6 p.m. on Tuesday, downstairs tenants at an apartment in the 3000 block of Quarter Creek Lane called 911 to report that water was flowing from an upstairs unit. The fire department was dispatched to the apartment where they found two bodies and then notified police.

"I was gone for 30 minutes with my son to get gas. We had to wait. When we came back, I got a call from my neighbor underneath. He said it was flooding, I was like, I didn't leave anything on," Danny Thompson said.

On Tuesday night, Thompson came home to a mess. He said he saw bullet holes in the ceiling.

"One of the officers came to me and said two people got murdered above my place and he said my toilet was shattered from bullet holes and there was holes all through there," Thompson said.

Thompson, who has lived here since October, said he was stunned by the tragic news.

"I didn't really know them. I've seen them come and go but I never heard any arguing or anything and I would've because these walls are thin," Thompson said.

Police have secured the scene and are going through a death investigation.

Any residents who may have seen or heard anything in connection with the deaths are asked to contact Henrico Police.
