TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Update - Tucson Police have officially released the names of the two victims in Wednesday's double homicide in midtown.

Kassandra Medina and Faustino Solis Garcia were the victims of an apparent homicide in midtown.  Both Medina and Garcia were identified as the parents of the baby girl found asleep, and unharmed, inside the home.


Tucson Police are responding to the 4500 block of East Fairmount in midtown. 

According to TPD officials, a person passing by the home called 911 to say they saw an unresponsive man in the doorway of a home. The call came in around 7:20 a.m. Wednesday morning. 

When police arrived on scene they found the bodies of a man and a woman possibly in their early twenties with signs of gunshot wounds.  According to TPD, a one-year-old was also found within the home, but was unharmed. The toddler is now in the custody of relatives.   

The victim's mother said the victims had barely moved into the home a month ago.

Police have not released the identities of the two victims, but the family is releasing this photo of Faustino Solis, who was reportedly gunned down right outside his home, and his girlfriend found shot inside the trailer.

Now, everyone one is wondering who could have killed this young couple, and why? Family members said it was a very bloody crime scene. The couple's baby was covered in blood when police brought the child out. Neighbor's reported hearing gunshots around 11:30 p.m., but the victim's body was not discovered until after seven this morning.

Our cameras were rolling as the family gathered outside the trailer this evening, packing up the victim's belongings and pulling them out of the house.

They are pleading with anyone who has information to step forward and help find the killers.

"I still don't believe it... until I see him.. I don't know what I'm going to do... Right now I just don't believe it," said Rosa Taveras, the victim's mother.

"They took everything from us," the victim's sister, Crystal Jimenez, said. "[They] took my nephew's father and mother.. my only brother. I'm never going to have one again. I just want the world to know if they hear any information we need your guys' help."

Police are still trying to figure out a motive for the crime. Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
