Tucson - Police suspect the shooting deaths of five people discovered in an Arizona home are a murder-suicide.

Officers found the bodies after responding to a call on Tuesday evening from a man who went to the house in Tucson, police Sgt Pete Dugan said.

Details are sparse, but all of the dead had "obvious signs of gunshot trauma," he told The Associated Press.

Authorities aren't actively searching for suspects because they suspect a murder-suicide, Dugan said.

Police got word of the bloodshed from a man who went to the house to meet someone, "peeked inside and noticed one individual who appeared to be deceased with multiple gunshot wounds," Dugan said.

Investigators did not release any other information, including names or ages.

Police Chief Roberto Villasenor told the Arizona Daily Star that all five appeared to have been shot sometime on Tuesday. He said the bodies were found in different areas of the house.
