INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

Independence police are continuing to investigate a double homicide that happened at an apartment near 35th and S. Lynn Court.

Just before 2:45 a.m., Independence police were called to the apartment on a “nature unknown” call.

When they were able to get inside, they found two men, dead inside. Investigators have not said how the men died.

There are still many questions about just what happened.

Police finished up at the scene around noon, but haven’t released much information.

Neighbors told KCTV5 News the homicide came as a shock.

“I didn't expect nothing like this to happen, especially so close to home,” said Charity Baker.

The street, which is usually littered with children coming home or going to school or playing games was instead covered with police on Thursday.

“Normally, coming down this block, would be like an elder or someone having a heart attack or a stroke or something like that, but never no killings,” said Shaneen Moorehead

So far, no official information has been released about the two men or their connection to one another.

Still, for those that call the area home, they simply want answers and change.

“I just wish there was something that could be done to stop all this violence and whatever is causing it,” said Chester Baker.

Police brought one person to the station who was inside the apartment to talk to them. They haven’t said what connection they have to the investigation and have not called them a suspect.

However, police did say they don’t believe anyone in the area is in danger.
