Nashville couple killed at Goodettsville motel

GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The police chief in Goodlettsville says investigators believe the killing of a couple in motel room was not a random act.

Police Chief Richard Pope said investigators think the suspects were looking for Dameon Daniels and Calandra Daniels of Nashville and were not "just knocking on doors," according to The Tennessean. The man was 32 and the woman was 33.

The couple's bodies were found by an employee of the Rodeway Inn on Monday morning. Police said the victims had been shot.

Pope said police were processing evidence recovered from the roadside, but declined to say what it was.

There had been no arrests on Tuesday and police were still trying to determine if there was more than one assailant. No motive was apparent.
