YUBA CITY (CBS13) — A man suspected of gunning down two people in Yuba City is still on the run.

Police are looking for 19-year-old Diego Martinez. They said he’s armed and dangerous.

The family of the victims was in disbelief as they arrived at the scene of this shooting on Clark Avenue Friday. Police said very little about the two people killed or how the suspect is connected to them. Neighbors said the victims are a middle-aged couple.

Jennifer Jernigan knew the couple, describing them as generous.

“She owns a little restaurant in town. Great people. He was a very nice man who would bring over fruit and nuts for Christmas,” Jernigan said.

Jernigan describes the scene earlier Friday as intense.

“I saw the policemen with guns drawn towards our back yard. He told me to quickly get back into the house which I did,” Jernigan said.

Police said they might identify the victims Saturday morning. Right now, they are being careful not to reveal any specifics about what they found inside the home.
