OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Two people were shot to death outside an Omaha motel Thursday morning, police said.

The shooting happened around 7:30 a.m., when police were called to a Best Western motel in southwestern Omaha, police said. Arriving officers found two people — a man and a woman — with gunshot wounds outside the building.

Both were declared dead at the scene. Their names were not immediately released.

A motel clerk who answered to phone Thursday morning told the Omaha World-Herald that the two people killed had been guests at the motel.

Investigators were questioning potential witnesses, police said. Authorities did not immediately release other details of the shooting or whether police have any suspects.
