A neighbor told News 4 that gunshots were heard shortly after midnight Tuesday. Another neighbor said he heard the couple's doberman pinscher barking all morning and thought it was unusual because the dog is usually very quiet.

A dog was also shot and is receiving medical attention.

Police believe the man and woman were targeted inside a home.
