PHOENIX — Two men were killed and one man was hospitalized after gunfire broke out at a Phoenix house party early Sunday, authorities said.

Officers responded to reports of a possible shooting at a loud house party around 1:35 a.m. near Baseline Road and 24th Street, the Phoenix Police Department said in a press release.

While officers tried making contact with the homeowner, they heard several gunshots being fired in the backyard of the residence, police said.

As police made their way to the backyard, dozens of people attending the party took off running.

Two men died at the scene and another sustained injuries that weren’t life-threatening.

Authorities said they saw dozens of vehicles when they arrived at the scene, some that were blocking the streets.

Homicide detectives will continue investigating the incident.

No details were provided on possible suspects in the case.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Phoenix Police Department at 602-262-6151, Silent Witness to remain anonymous at 480-948-6377 or 480-837-8446 for Spanish.
