A manhunt is underway as detectives have identified a possible suspect in the fatal shooting of a man and woman in Oneco Friday afternoon.
The victims were identified as Lashawna Stevenson-Weeks, 27, and Barry Joseph, 32. They are both from Manatee County, but the sheriff's office said they did not live where they were killed.
Detectives are looking for a light-skinned, black male that was last seen wearing a red hat and white t-shirt, according to Sheriff Rick Wells.
The man was last seen driving a small, compact dark-blue or black car, Wells also said, but the make or model is unknown.
"He was seen leaving this location southbound on 15th Street Court East heading towards 53rd Avenue East," Wells said.
Deputies and other detectives are searching other areas of the county for the suspect, Wells added.
"We do have some witnesses that saw some things and heard some things," he said.
