When deputies arrived, they found one man lying on his back in the front yard of the home and covered in blood. Deputies tried to save him while other deputies went inside to check for additional victims and a possible suspect.

As they searched, they found another man shot to death in the upstairs rear living room. This man was also lying on his back and was dead when deputies arrived.

The victims, a 23-year-old and 30-year, were not identified.
