Detroit police are investigating a double homicide carried out by two masked men early Wednesday on the city's west side. 

The double homicide took place about 12:30 a.m. on the 10000 block of Patton, said Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. The area is south of Plymouth Road and east of Rouge Park.

The victims are a 45-year-old woman and a man, 48. 

The man responded to a knock at his door, but then ran out of the house and was chased and gunned down near a neighbor's home, outside.

The woman was shot in her head inside the home. Both died at the scene.

The suspects are described as two black males, wearing masks, armed with handguns. They were last spotted leaving the scene in a white Dodge SUV.
