Two people, including a juvenile, were found shot to death in a crashed car in Willowbrook late Thursday night, authorities said.

Once they arrived, deputies found two people with gunshot wounds inside a vehicle. The pair had both been shot in their upper torsos, and both were pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.


Neither the names nor ages of the victims, both of whom were male, have been released, but sheriff’s officials said one was a juvenile.

Authorities said Friday morning that they do not yet have information about a suspect or a motive.
