The state police are conducting an investigation into the apparent shooting deaths of two residents.

The victims were Damian Ortiz, 24, and Stephanie Dimas, 25, state police Lt. David Martinez said. They were killed while inside a mobile home at 728 Dora Celeste, north of Las Vegas. It was believed to have happened between 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. today. Martinez said Ortiz and Dimas were a couple.

The state police said they didn’t have a motive in the case or any suspects.

The gray doublewide mobile home is near a mobile home park on Dora Celeste. This morning, police tape surrounded part of the house, which is a ways back from the street. Behind the house were two cars.

Anyone with information about the case is urged to call the local state police office at 425-6771.
