PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A man and a woman were found dead in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia Thursday evening with gunshot wounds to the head, police said.

Just before 11 p.m., a 911 call came in after someone found a body on the 3800 block of Mount Pleasant Drive in East Fairmount Park. The area is close to the historic Mount Pleasant Mansion and the Dairy Fields.

Doctors and police who arrived on the scene found the body of a 38-year-old woman next to the body of a 48-year-old man in a roadside gully. Three spent shell casings were found nearby, Philadelphia Police Capt. Scott Small said.

β€œAt this point it appears they were both shot execution style,” Small said. ‘Not just because they were next to each other. …It appears that the shooter or shooters were standing very close to these two victims when the shots were fired, as the ballistic evidence was right there, just a few feet away. “

Small lists a Philadelphia address for the woman in the documents, while police are unsure where the man is from.

Police were able to identify both victims. Their identities are not being released pending notification of their families.

Small said there are surveillance cameras at the Mount Pleasant Mansion, about half a block from the crime scene. Police hope the footage can reveal more about a possible shooter or shooters.
