SHELTON, Wash. - After two bodies were found at a Shelton home early Monday morning, police took two people into custody, according to the Shelton Police Department.

 

Police told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Rick Price a 911 dispatcher received a call from a neighbor at 12:50 a.m. of gunshots being fired south of Harvard Avenue.

 

When police arrived in the wooded area, they found the door open at a house.

 

“They found a residence with a door open, and a quick check within the residence revealed two deceased persons,” said Lt. Les Watson of the Shelton Police Department.

 

After 8 a.m., a SWAT team arrived at the location and officers requested a search warrant for the home.

 

Police informed KIRO 7 the Washington State Patrol assisted officers during the investigation.

 

"We have called state patrol in. They'll bring their total station, which is a mapping system, to lock down every item of importance at a crime scene, and also their crime scene people will come in and give us assistance with logging the evidence and securing the scene," Watson said.

 

Police fired tear gas into the home and loud bangs were heard.

 

Then a man and woman came out of the house with their hands up and surrendered to police. Officers are currently questioning them about the shooting, which may have involved a dispute between neighbors.

 

 

“We’ve heard that there was some sort of tension involved from one resident to the next,” Watson said.

 

Police told KIRO 7 officers are looking for a third person of interest connected with the incident. They said they were looking for a man with a dark complexion and driving a silver or gray Toyota.
