Authorities are on the scene of a double fatal shooting at a Decatur apartment complex, reports WAGA TV.

DeKalb County police say the shooting happened in the 2700 block of Shellbark Road around 6 a.m. at the Walden Pond complex off Snapfinger Woods Drive, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Two women in their 20s were found dead near a parking lot. A resident found the bodies near a sidewalk and called police.

Police say that so far the residents they've talked to didn't see anything.

“Someone is reporting that they heard shots sometime last night, but we were not notified until 6 a.m. when someone came out and observed one of the victims,” a police spokesman told the newspaper.

Patch will update this story as details are released.
