ESTILL, SC (WTOC) -It has been a week since two men were killed inside of their home in Estill, South Carolina.

On Sunday, police say 2 men are still on the loose after this armed robbery that turned deadly.

The families of these men and the Latin community in Estill are seeking justice. One man who lived in the home survived and was able to give details for law enforcement to come up with sketches of the two suspects.

Police say this incident started out as an armed robbery and turned into a deadly shooting. Chief Collins with the Estill Police Department says the two suspects broke into the home and demanded cash. The third person living in the home ran and hid.

Police say they are looking into the circumstances of what led up to the fatal shooting of the two men in the home as to whether this was a targeted or random crime.
