PHOENIX — Phoenix police are conducting a homicide investigation after two men were found dead and another was critically injured with gunshot wounds on Saturday morning.

Officers responded to an unknown trouble call around 1 a.m. near the area of 62nd Avenue and Camelback Road and found two men dead with apparent gunshot wounds, the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.

In a nearby residence, another man was found with gunshot wounds and taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

Early indications lead police to believe there was a gunfire exchange between the men outside and the man inside.

Investigators are on scene looking for witnesses and evidence.

Camelback Road was restricted from 61st to 65th avenues at 8 a.m. and police said it will be for several hours.

No additional information was made available.
