HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Two males were found dead in a Henrico building Friday morning, according to Henrico Police.

Henrico Police remain at the crime scene along the 900 block of Nine Mile Road collecting evidence.

Officers were called to the area at about 5:02 a.m. when someone heard gunshots and called police.

"Once on scene, officers entered the business where two males were found deceased," a Henrico Police spokesperson wrote in an email. "Detectives within the Criminal Investigations Section are working to identify the two victims and notify next of kin. Members of this unit will be on scene over the next few hours collecting evidence to assist with the investigation."

Police have not yet released information about possible suspects or a motive for the shooting.

A neighbor told CBS 6's Brendan King that cars for sale are stored on the property near North Airport Drive.

More than a dozen family members and friends of the victims stood across the street from the crime scene as officers investigated. Most had tears in their eyes and were seen hugging each other.

Police asked anyone with information to call 804-501-5000.

They also encourage anyone with surveillance cameras to review the video at the time of the shooting and turn it into police.
