KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV/AP) -

Police have identified three men who were found shot to death inside a Kansas City, KS duplex.

The victims found Tuesday were 51-year-old Edward A. Rawlins, 46-year-old David C. Rawlins and 40-year-old Addrin C. Coats.

Police were called about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday to 11th Street and Tenny Avenue. The three men had been dead inside the duplex for 12 hours before police arrived. 

A neighbor saw one of the men laying in the doorway to the house and was on his way to call police when officers arrived. 

“My kids’ mother told me that once I got back here, if I saw the door still open and him there that I should call and let somebody know," neighbor Larry Saunders said. “It kind of makes you wonder and worry a lot more than you should.” 

Police have not released any more information in the case.
