CHAMPAIGN -- Two people died in a shooting at a Champaign home. Police believe it was a murder-suicide. People who live nearby are speaking out. They want to make their neighborhoods safe again.
Investigators said it started with two people arguing and ended with both of them dead. Neighbors said they're trying to find a way to help people before it gets to that point.
"Feel kind of bad about the whole situation," said Linda Turnbull, who lives near where the shooting happened. "It's a loss to everybody. The kids with a parent, two people lost, they have parents and family too."
Turnbull is a community liaison around Champaign and Urbana. She hopes there's a way to stop the violence.
"There are some signs before it gets to this point," said Turnbull. "Maybe something's been going on way before now."
This issue is coming up again after two people were found in a Champaign home. Both had been shot. A 37-year-old man died at the home. 34-year-old Emily Davis was taken to a hospital. She died too.
"It's terrible," said Champaign Police Lt. Robert Rea. "I feel bad for the families of both involved. It's a terrible thing to be dealing with this time of year or any time of the year, but this time particularly."
Three children were home at the time. One of them was 12 years old, another was 10 years old and the third was 3 months old. They're with other family members now. One of the children called 911 after the shooting. But investigators said they still don't know who pulled the trigger.
"We have our suspicions but we don't have any confirmation at this point," said Lt. Rea.
People who live in the area said they want to increase neighborhood crime watches to keep things like that from happening again. Investigators said the pair knew each other but couldn't say more about their relationship. They wouldn't release how many times they were shot or where. But they are working to find more answers to what happened.
