Two 17-year-old high school students were found dead behind a Georgia grocery store Monday morning, each with a single bullet wound to the head, WGCL reports. A delivery driver found the bodies of Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis around 6am behind a Publix grocery store in Roswell. According to WSB, the teens were found lying next to their cars, and police believe they were killed behind the store. Police say the teens got to the store between 2am and 4am; the parents of both believed they were home in bed at the time. No arrests have been made, but police have "several leads" and are reviewing security camera footage, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Both teens were preparing to start their senior year, Henderson at Roswell High School and Davis at River Ridge High School. Henderson was an honor student and member of the school's color guard. The Roswell band director called her "a fun, smart, talented young woman who was loved by so many." Davis played football and lacrosse at River Ridge. "Our team is just devastated," Davis' lacrosse coach tells WSB. (More homicide stories.)
