SODUS, N.Y. (AP) - Schools are closed in an upstate New York town as police continue to search for the suspect in a double fatal shooting.

Authorities say the shooting happened Monday afternoon outside a home in Sodus, on Lake Ontario about 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of Rochester.

A witness told police the suspect walked up to a car and shot and killed the female driver. The suspect then shot and killed a man nearby.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says the suspect was spotted running through the backyard of a home near the shooting scene wearing a dark hoodie and a green hat.

Police are not releasing the names of the victims until their next-of-kin is notified.

Authorities say the victims knew each other, but have declined to divulge details of their relationship.
