New Orleans - A father and son were found shot to death inside their Mid-City home early Sunday morning, according to the NOPD.

Police said 41-year-old Joseph Evans and his 17-year-old son Joseph Elliot were both shot several times inside the house in the 2800 block of St. Louis Street just after midnight.

Neighbors said the shooting came hours after a heated argument between the victims and a female neighbor, though it is not certain the two incidents are related.

Police said they have identified two men as suspects in the case, 25-year-old Tabari Butler and 20-year-old Joseph Tate.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call Crimestoppers at 822=1111.
