FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV)—Police have indentified the two young women who were found shot to death in a Ferguson apartment early Friday morning.

The victims have been identified as Tasheerra Johnson, 29, and Claudia Williams, 30. Police said Johnson and Williams were found dead Friday morning at the Oakmont Townhomes Complex in the 1600 block of Northwinds Estates Drive. Officials said family members discovered the bodies just after 6 a.m. 

Investigators said the victims apparently died from gunshot wounds. Police said a baby was also found the apartment and was not harmed.

Officers say a vehicle belonging to one of the victims was reported missing, but has been located in Madison County, Illinois. Officials did not elaborate further on the vehicle's exact location.

Several neighbors told News 4 the complex is notorious for having guns fired. One lady said she's made several complaints and has been robbed, but nothing has been done. She said since this recent incident, she plans on breaking her lease.

News 4's Laura Hettiger called the management property asking about gunshots, but the person who answered the phone said they had no comment and hung up on her.

Ferguson Police are urging anyone with information on this case or the missing vehicle to contact authorities.
