ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Two men are wanted by Rockford police for questioning in the shooting deaths of a married couple early Thursday morning.
Police say the two are “persons of interest” in this morning’s double murder.
The shooting happened around 3:30 a.m. at 727 Bruce Street. Police said a 27 year-old woman, Christina Langston-Hill, was found shot to death outside of her home.
Inside, they found her husband, 28 year-old Teon Hill, who’d been shot multiple times. He was taken to the hospital, but died from his injuries.
Surveillance video from a nearby security camera obtained by Eyewitness News shows someone walking along Bruce Street and then, a short time later, running away.
Rockford Police Chief Dan O’Shea said the murders occurred at the same house where a dog was shot to death on July 19th.
On Friday, July 19th, Rockford Police say they responded to a call of shots fired at the house around 2:30 a.m.
Witnesses said a Langston-Hill was dog-sitting for a friend when her brother, Kelvin Langston, 28, and Douglas Hollyfield, 26, allegedly entered the house and took turns shooting the dog several times.
The dog died from its injuries.
Langston and Hollyfield are still at large and wanted by police for allegedly killing the dog.
Both men are wanted on charges of Aggravated Cruelty to an Animal, Unlawful Use of Weapons by a Felon, Unlawful Use of Weapons by a Gang Member, Reckless Discharge, and no Firearm Owner’s Identification card.
O’Shea said the two men are “persons of interest” in the murders.
Winnebago County State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross said Langston-Hill had filed a No Stalking order against Hollyfield, and an Order of Protection against Langston, both of which were due to be heard in court this afternoon.
