TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Family members were visibly shaken in the wake of two people shot to death inside their home, as investigators surveyed the scene Friday.

The two people were found dead in their home, at the intersection of Colt street and Hale Avenue in Tifton.

Neighbors stood by in shock as they tried to understand what happened.

Agents with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation released an official statement Friday night.

"I actually just seen them together, and just to know that this was they last time I would have, [I] never thought it," said Shaderika Riggins.

Many crowded the scene trying to understand what happened.

Family and friends said 26-year-old Horace Brinkley and 18-year-old Nicole Golsen were shot inside the home. The GBI did later confirm their names. Not many friends at the scene wanted to speak, because they said they were devastated.

Riggins said she grew up with Brinkley.

"He was a good-hearted person," she recalled. "I never heard his name in the street."

Riggins said she saw the two on Thursday and can't believe someone would harm them.

"They was at Flash Foods, and you don't never know the last time you going to see someone you know, and that's the thing that kind of touch me just a little bit," she said.

But Riggins also said she sympathizes with the family because she feels like she too could have been in the same situation.

She said if someone killed the couple, that person should fess up.

"Who ever did it, you know, just come forward." she pleaded.

The GBI did not say whether they were searching for a killer.
