Rochester Police are investigating tonight after two people were found dead inside a home in northwest Rochester this afternoon.

Capt. Casey Moilanen said officers discovered an 18-year-old male and a 61-year-old male, both dead of gunshot wounds. Both lived at the address, he said.

The investigation will continue throughout the night; preliminary evidence at the scene indicates there is no danger to the public.

Neighbors say a couple lived in the home on Eighth Avenue Northwest with their teenage son. They had lived there about three years.

A neighbor said she heard a woman scream about 4 p.m., then saw an ambulance arrive and leave without its lights on. A heavy police presence formed soon after.

They didn't know the people well, just enough to say "hello" at the mailbox, the neighbor said.

More information is expected to be released Tuesday morning.
