Two men were shot dead when after they reportedly forced their way into the home of a University of Arizona student in midtown early Thursday morning, police
The possible home invasion was in the 800 block
of East Adams Street between North Euclid and North Tyndall avenues, shortly before 12:30 a.m., Sgt. Fabian Pacheco said.
A 23-year-old student was home alone when he heard noises at the front door from two men he did not know, Pacheco said.
It is unclear if the men forced their way in after the student opened the door, or if they broke into the house, he said.
The student shot the two men inside the home and called police, Pacheco said.
When police arrived, two men in their mid 20s were dead on the floor inside the home, he said.
Because the investigation was in its early stages, police did not know what the two men were looking for, or if the pair had approached
the house by mistake.
