Five people were found shot dead Tuesday night in a home in Tucson, Arizona, police said.

Few details were immediately available, but Police Chief Roberto Villaseñor said in an interview on NBC station KVOA that the bodies were found in different parts of the house, all with gunshot wounds.

Police Sgt. Pete Dugan confirmed that police were at a homicide scene in southeast Tucson with multiple victims. The address is near Tucson International Airport and about two miles west of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

Station KVOA quoted police as saying someone called 911 shortly before 6 p.m. (8 p.m. ET) to report having seen a person with obvious signs of trauma inside the home. The bodies were discovered a few minutes later, police told the newspaper.

The five victims included men and women but no young children, KVOA reported.
