    A gunman shot and killed a brother and sister inside a Philadelphia home Sunday morning, according to police.

    A family member found a 48-year-old man and his 54-year-old sister inside their home on the 1900 block of E. Clearfield Street around 9 a.m. The man had been shot in the head and stomach while his sister had been shot once in the head.

    Police have not yet released the identities of the victims. Family members identified them as Florence Pompey, also known as "Tina," and Raymond Finney.

    "My brother Raymond first of all was a good brother," Rosezalla Dupree, the victims' sister, told NBC10. "He didn't deserve that. Tina was a God-fearing woman. She didn't deserve that."

    Neighbors told NBC10 Finney was both a father and a grandfather while Pompey was the neighborhood block captain and was well-liked in the community.

    "She gave out lunches to kids who didn't have food in the summer," Jaclyn Gular said. "She cleaned the block. She threw block parties. She was a good woman."

    The brother and sister lived together in the home where they were found dead. Neighbors say they last saw Pompey early Friday evening, less than 48 hours before her death.

    "They couldn't get a hold of her since Friday," Bobby Vanhorn, a neighbor, said. "They knocked on the door this morning. That's when we heard screaming outside."

    No arrests have been made and a weapon has not been recovered. Dupree had a message for the person or people responsible for her siblings' deaths.

    "So if you're looking and see this, turn yourself in," Dupree said. "That's all I ask you to do. Turn yourself in."
