TACOMA — Police are investigating the deaths of two men found with gunshot wounds in a Pierce County home.

Sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said the men appear to be in their late 20s. The father of one of the men went to check on his son, who lives at the South Hill home, and discovered the bodies Monday morning.

He said the men may have been shot overnight. Police are treating it as a double-homicide until they know more about what happened.

Troyer said Monday evening that police searched the home and found a lot of ammunition, guns and gun gases. They also recovered a weapon but it’s unclear whether it’s connected to the deaths.

Police do not have anyone in custody.
