Crawford County deputies found two people fatally shot Tuesday afternoon in the 200 block of Pine Forest Drive in Musella.

Authorities were called at 2:52 p.m. about a person shot, Crawford County Sheriff Lewis Walker said.

When deputies arrived, they found a man and woman dead. Authorities haven’t released their names, pending notification of next of kin, Walker said.
