It happened around 9pm at the corner of Hunter and Sheppard Streets off Macon Street. Now, police are looking for William and Sharmila Powell.

Police say the two, along with Donovan Scott, showed up on Geno Evan's doorstep Tuesday night to rob Evans. Evans called his father and next door neighbor, Jesse Evans, for help and Jesse came with a shotgun and both sides started shooting. Jesse Evans and Donovan Scott were killed.

"Processing the scene, we found drugs and money in the home. It started out as an armed robbery and turned into murder," said Jesup Police chief Butch Hutchison.

They were last seen in a rental car heading toward Interstate 95. It's described as a 2007 Chrysler Pacifica, black in color, with a tag number 3334ASZ. They are considered armed and dangerous.
