BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Police in Alabama are investigating after two men were found shot to death inside a home.

Local news outlets report the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office identified the men, found early Wednesday, as 20-year-old DeJohn Lewis Williams and 22-year-old Dante Lanier Hall. Williams lived in the home where the killings took place.

Birmingham police Lt. Sean Edwards says police responded around 1 a.m. Wednesday to a home in Birmingham’s Powderly community after neighbors reported hearing gunshots. Officers found Williams and Hall each dead from a single gunshot wound.

Edwards says there was a small amount of drugs and drug paraphernalia inside the home. He called the incident a “cold and calculated shooting.”

The investigation is ongoing.
