Officials say they are investigating a possible murder-suicide in the 16000 block of Valley Trail in Mishawaka.

The St. Joseph County Police Department tweeted the information just after 7 a.m. Thursday.

Around 12:40 a.m. Thursday, St. Joseph County Police Department officers responded to the area regarding a report of an assault in progress.

Upon arrival, the officers discovered two males dead as a result of apparent gunshot wound injuries.

According to a tweet, police also found multiple firearms.

Investigators are not searching for any suspects and no arrests have been made.

The identities of the victims are being withheld pending family notification.

16 News Now's Lindsay Stone spoke with neighbors who say tragedy has rocked this small, quiet street once before.

Just down the street from where last night's possible murder-suicide occurred is the location of where a man committed suicide after killing a local doctor four years ago.

"It's a calm neighborhood, I would never expect anything like that to happen," said a neighbor. "We’ve never had any problems. I’m sure it will all come out."

The St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Unit is handling the investigation.
