Police identified Thursday the second man killed in a double homicide shooting in Canton.

Eryc Ahmir Higgins, 18, and Joshua Weatherspoon, 35, were found dead Tuesday morning at a home in the 2400 block of Midway Avenue NE.

Canton police say the investigation into their deaths is continuing and no arrests have been made.

A woman and three children—ages 11 months, two years and four years—were also inside the home at the time of the shooting.

Connie Miller, a 74-year-old neighbor, told newsnet5.com the woman ran to her home to report the shooting. The woman, whose hands were zip-tied together, said someone put something over her head to cover her eyes and then tied her hands. 

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is assisting Canton police with the investigation.
