ESCAMBIA COUNTY - But first, new information on the shooting deaths of a well known Escambia County couple.
Byrd and Melonie Billings were shot multiple times in their own home while their children were present.
Channel Three's Dan Thomas joins us now with surveillance video, you'll see "Only On Three".
Escambia Sheriff David Morgan is hoping the picture of this red van will trigger some leads.
This was taken with a surveillance system outside the Billings' home.
Investigators believe this is the vehicle use by the people who murdered the Billings.
Friend of Melanie Billings: "I saw it last night on the news as soon as I saw the fence and a light post I knew. And I just didn't know what to do."
Those close to the billings are struggling to make sense of it all.
This woman who didn't want her face shown has been friends with Melonie Billings since high school.
Friend of Melanie Billings: "Just to let everyone know they were loved. I drove by earlier and it just looked so desolate and so I just want everyone to know they were loved and they were great people."
Sheriff David Morgan/Escambia County: "If you were to go throughout the county and say well somebody was living in the wrong area or some one is involved in an activity that would bring this upon them, that would not fit the Billings family."
Escambia Sheriff David Morgan says around 7 pm Thursday this red van pulled up to the Billings home.
The back van door opens and 3 people dressed in black get out and run to the house.
The sheriff says they forced thier way in through two doors and shot the Billings multiple times.
Sheriff David Morgan/Escambia County: "we'll also tell you there were children located in this home at the time of the murder."
In fact, eight of the Billing's children were home at the time fortunately none of them were hurt.
Sheriff David Morgan/Escambia County: "We are developing some persons of interest which we will release at a later date."
Part of the problem in identifying the suspects is the quality of the video when it comes to a description the sheriff would only say this.
Sheriff David Morgan/Escambia County: "White.((Reporter, male or female?)) White. ((you won't say their sex?)) White. ((men)) White."
It's little for the public to go on but this friend hopes it's enough.
Friend of Melanie Billings: "It's unbelievable. I hope they catch these idiots who did this." "They can't run far enough. Everyone's going to be looking for them."
Here's another look at the van, investigators believe it's a 1970's or 80's Ford or Dodge 15 passenger van.
It would have been in the 9700 block of Mobile Highway sometime around 7 pm last night.
