MILWAUKEE - Two people have died in a double shooting on the city's south side.

Police said Tuesday morning they did not have an identified suspect in custody.

The shooting happened at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday at a duplex near the corner of South 24th and West Scott streets, near National Avenue.

A 29-year-old man was found dead inside the home.  A 44-year-old man was found dead on the curb outside it.

"It's crazy.  It's too close to home," John Voit, a neighbor, told TODAY'S TMJ4's Nick Montes.

Voit lives a few doors from the home where the deadly shooting happened.

"(A neighbor) said he saw four people, and it looked like a couple of them were shot."

The neighbor told Voit that one victim jumped out of the window and ran.

"He heard the glass break and (saw) somebody get up, stumbling and running, and fell on the lawn."

The victim died about a half block from where the shooting happened.

Police impounded a red Honda Accord.

Some neighbors aren't surprised by the violence, and they say something needs to be done.

"Maybe more police, you know, going around," suggested Cindy Resto, who lives nearby.
