SEMINOLE, TX (KCBD) -

Authorities are investigating a double homicide in Gaines County near the New Mexico state line. Gaines County Sheriff Jon Key says it appears both victims have several gunshot wounds.

Jay Bradley Doyal, 29, and John Allen, 30, of Gaines County were pronounced dead Friday at a home near the intersection of CR 347 and CR 306.

According to Sheriff Key, a woman from Hobbs, NM informed deputies she had gone to a friend's residence and found the door open Thursday at 3:57 p.m. She saw a man lying inside who appeared to be deceased. Shortly after, Gaines County deputies arrived at the scene where they found a second individual.

Friday afternoon, the DPS crime lab processed the scene as well as three cars in front of the house. Authorities removed several computers, large guns, a video camera and bags of evidence from the residence.

Right now the Gaines County Sheriff's Department is working with the Texas Rangers. They believe this could be connected to Hobbs, which is why the Hobbs Police Department and Lea County officials are also assisting.

No suspects have been arrested and authorities do not have a description at this time. However, they are working off of two or three leads.

If you have any information, please call the Gaines County Sheriff's Office at (432) 758-9871.
