Dallas police say a man and a woman have been found shot to death on the front porch of their home in the M Streets area of the city.

Investigators say the bodies were discovered early Wednesday at the residence in the 5700 block of Marquita Drive as officers responded to a call about gunfire.

Police have identified the victims as 40-year-old Yayehyirad Lemma and 31-year-old Yenenesh Desta, owners of the Desta restaurant on Greenville Avenue.

The deceased were returning home from work when they were killed, police said.

According to a family friend, the pair have a 1-year-old boy, who is in the care of relatives.

Police are trying to determine a possible motive for the shootings.

No one has been arrested.
