Detectives are conducting a death investigation after two people were found dead in a home in west Charlotte, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Officers received a call just after 12:15 p.m. Wednesday, January 30, from a caller who said she had found two people inside a home on Winchester Street who had suffered from apparent gunshot wounds, police said.

The deceased were identified Wednesday night as Derrick Antoine Teasley, 32, and Shakendra Nicole Covington, 22.
