JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WCSC) - Authorities in Florida believe the person or persons responsible for shooting and killing two stepbrothers last June could be in Georgetown County.

A $10,000 reward is being offered by CrimeStoppers for information that leads to the suspect or suspects responsible for killing two men.

According to Jacksonville County, Fla. sheriff's deputies, 33-year-old John Ragin, Jr. and 36-year-old Eric Stubbs were found shot to death on June 29, 2011 inside a home Ragin shared with a roommate.

Police say their bodies were found by a family member. According to investigators, there was no sign of forced entry and they do not think it was a murder-suicide. The two men were stepbrothers.

Investigators say the victims had acquaintances in the Georgetown and McClellanville areas.
