Tacoma police were trying to figure out what led up to two men being fatally shot outside a home early Friday.
Several people called 911 just before 1 a.m. to report hearing gunshots in the 3600 block of Portland Avenue East, police said.
Officers arrived and found one man dead and another mortally wounded. The second man was pronounced dead by 1:40 a.m.
Neither victim had been identified by late Friday. One was 55; the other was in his 40s, police said.
No one has been arrested and a motive has not been released.
The investigation was ongoing.
