Pennsylvania Police Find 2 Bodies Inside Surrounded Home

State police say they've found two bodies inside a northeastern Pennsylvania home after it was surrounded by troopers who heard a gunshot.

Troopers from the Hazleton barracks responded to the residence in Dorrance Township about 6:10 p.m. Wednesday. That's because someone had called to report an unresponsive person at that address.

Emergency responders heard a gunshot from inside the home as they arrived, prompting the state police to summon a Special Emergency Response Team, which is similar to a SWAT unit.

When police finally entered the home hours later, they found the bodies inside.

The Luzerne County coroner and state police have yet to identify the victims or to say how they died.

The investigation continued Thursday.
