SMITHFIELD, Va. (AP) - Authorities say two people are dead after a home invasion in Smithfield.

TV station WAVY reports police received an emergency call around 11:15 a.m. Saturday about a residential burglary. Isle of Wight County Sheriff’s Lt. James Pope says when deputies arrived at the home, they found a male and female dead.

Pope says authorities are investigating the case as a home invasion and double homicide.

Deputies didn’t immediately release any information about a possible suspect but did say they are looking for two vehicles missing from the home: a gray 2010 Ford F-150 and a beige 2001 Chrysler van.
