Two men are dead after a shooting in Brighton late Sunday afternoon.

Brighton Police tell News10NBC several calls came in to their department about a possible disturbance at the Elmwood Court Apartments around 4 p.m. Sunday.

The Elmwood Court Apartments are located on Elmwood Avenue, right off Interstate 590.

When police arrived at the apartment complex, they made a grisly discovery. One man was dead and another man had an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

This is an incident that even shocked police.

At this hour, police are not identifying the two men involved. All they could really say is one of the victims, a 30-year-old man, was found dead with a gun shot wound inside the apartment.

The other, a 29 year old man, was found with a possible self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where he later died.

The incident happened at the very back of the apartment complex. Police would not let anyone in, as it was an active scene for several hours.

News10NBC did see police tow away a red car., which is believed to belong to one of the victims.

At this hour investigators are not sure which one of the men lived at the apartment or if there were any previous incidents at that residence.

Neighbors News10NBC spoke to off camera said they were shocked to hear about the incident.

The Brighton Chief of Police said the last homicide they had was around a year ago, and before that it was at least 15 years ago.

“It is a rare occurrence, something like this. We did hear from neighbors how alarmed they were. We got a number of calls and talked to some neighbors on scene that described what they heard. To say it's a rare occurrence is an understatement,” said Mark Henderson, Brighton Police Chief.

At this hour the investigation is on going. Police are not looking for any additional suspects in this incident.

There are still so many questions surrounding this incident, such as what was the cause and if these two people related in any kind of way.
