The identities of the two deceased victims remain unknown.

Sioux City police are investigating a fatal shooting and stabbing on the city's west side early Friday morning.
The street in front of the crime scene was crawling with emergency responders just twelve hours ago and investigators worked on processing the crime scene inside the home well into this morning... as information developed in the fatal shooting that took place less than a block away from Crescent Park School.
Police and multiple ambulances arrived at the scene at 507 West 27th street shortly after midnight.
More than two ambulances left the scene transporting at least four people with gunshot wounds to the hospital, including the suspect, who is in custody.
Two of those wounded are reported dead and a third is in surgery for the gunshot wounds.
Investigators processed the evidence at the crime scene for more than four hours but no solid explanation for the night's events has come forward.
"This is an ongoing investigation. We don't know the exact cause of this dispute or what led up to this. However, we do not feel that this was a random event. These people knew each other, from what we can tell," Jeremy McClure, Sioux City Police Detective.
One of the injured sustained stab wounds in addition to gunshot wounds.
Neighbors said the sheer number of emergency responders on their street made for a scary scene to wake up to in the middle of the night.
"I just woke up because I heard sirens, and when I got up I could just see lights everywhere. We looked outside and from every entrance to our street there were police vehicles, and also ambulances and fire trucks," Kelly Foster, of Sioux City said.
KTIV's Kayah Gausman will have the latest on the homicide on News 4 5 and 6.
