DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit police are investigating a double murder on the city's east side.
It happened in the 3500 block of Anderdon.
Police say the bodies of two young men were found inside a home around 2:00 p.m.
Investigators say the home where the bodies were found is known for drug activities. Neighbors said that the home has been a known drug house for the past five years.
Family members at the scene tell 7 Action News the males are two teenagers, one is 16-years-old and one of them just turned 19-years-old. Those who live nearby said believe the teens had been killed early this morning because they heard gunshots around 2:30 a.m. The 19-year-old's step-grandfather said the teen had been trying to get out of drugs.
"He just got lost you know," said John Rhodes, the step-grandfather. "He was supposed to go down to Georgia. I guess he'll never get the chance. He's a good kid."
Police said the two males were shot in the body, but family members said that one of the teens had been shot in the head and the other had been shot in the chest.
The two teens were found dead on what is supposed to be a 'No Violence Day, across Detroit. Mayor Dave Bing recently signed the proclamation, but Detroit City Council signed a resolution two years ago making the 22nd of every month a 'No Violence Day' and 'Thou Shall Not Kill Day'.
