TYLER, TEXAS (KLTV) - Tyler Police Department received a call around 3:06 a.m. Saturday, September 11, 2010 from an unknown person stating that someone had been shot in the Line Street Alley.

Police say Felisha Mosley, 38, and Pedro Flores, 49, both of Tyler, were found dead at 909 East Line Street, Saturday morning.

We're told Mosley lived alone in the home.  Her body was found just inside the front door with at least one gun shot wound.  Flores's body was found just a few yards away, on the ground in front of the small house.  Tyler police are investigating the deaths as a double homicide.

The Tyler Police Department received a call around 3:06 this morning from an unknown person who said someone had been shot in the Line Street alley.

Officers responded to the area and discovered Flores, a Hispanic male. Officers discovered the front door of the residence open, and saw Mosley lying on the floor. 

Tyler Police Department Investigators continued to process the scene, Saturday morning.  Officer Don Martin tells us they are following leads, and may be close to identifying the suspect or suspects involved.  Martin says the area is known for prostitution and drug activity and investigators believe that may be a possible motive.  He says Tyler Police have dealt with Mosley in the past. 

Anyone with information about the suspects involved in this crime are urged to contact the Tyler Police Department, at 903-531-1000, or Crimestoppers, at 903-597-CUFF (903-597-2833).  Crimestoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest and charges filed against the suspects in this case, or any, felony case.
