Police discovered two bodies lying motionless on the front lawn outside a home in Hollywood.
The double shooting happened early Saturday in the 2400 block of Wilson Street.
"I've never seen something like that here," said neighbor Carlos Real.
"I heard someone screaming, then I heard three shots," said Carla Real.
Carla, 11, was jolted out of her sleep around 5:30 a.m. Saturday and ran for her mom.
"I was screaming come on inside! Come on inside! I heard that. She's a child. She's only 11 years old," said Ivette Real. "I came outside and see the people on the floor."
Police said the two found shot to death were a man in his 40s and a woman in her 20s. Crime scene investigators gathered evidence for hours and towed a vehicle parked outside the home.
Police are calling this a domestic incident and would only say that the man and woman were at some point involved with one another.
Police said they are not looking for a shooter.
