Two Suspicious Deaths In Gulfport

Police are hoping search warrants for several locations will help determine how two people ended up dead inside a Gulfport home.

Friday morning police discovered the bodies of a man and a woman inside a house on West David Drive. That's in the Pine Hills subdivision off Dedeaux Road.

Police are calling the deaths suspicious, but are waiting for an autopsy report before releasing identities or cause of death. That autopsy is scheduled for Saturday.

Chief Alan Weatherford said an acquaintance of one of the victims went to the house after getting a phone call from someone saying gun shots had been fired there. The acquaintance entered the home and found the male victim dead on the floor. The acquaintance then called police, who were able to enter the house after getting a search warrant.

Police also went to a Gulfport hotel to interview an acquaintance of the victims in hopes of getting more information for the investigation.
