Five people were found shot to death in Tucson, Arizona, on Tuesday evening in what appears to have been a murder-suicide.

Their bodies were discovered at just before 6 p.m. when a man who was supposed to meet with a friend at the residence looked inside the home and saw a corpse, the Arizona Daily Star reports.

After police arrived, they found the five individuals, males and females, scattered throughout the house. All had “obvious signs of gunshot trauma,” Sgt. Pete Dugan told the Associated Press.

Authorities believe the shooting was a murder-suicide and are not currently looking for any suspects. “They are trying to figure what took place. Right now it appears it was a murder-suicide, but [the investigation] is in its initial stages,” Dugan added.

Police do not know the relationship between the victims, who have not yet been identified, according to Tucson News Now.
