Two men were found dead in University Place early Monday, according to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
A neighbor called 911 about 5:30 a.m. after spotting two people unconscious inside a Dodge Charger in the 6100 block of 63rd Street W.
"There was a car that was parked kinda at a 45-degree angle and blocking the roadway," sheriff's spokesman Gary Sanders said.
Deputies responded and found that both people had been shot.
Bullet holes were found on the inside of the vehicle, investigators said.
Details about what led up to the shooting and identities of the victims are unknown.
No one has been arrested.
Deputies are canvassing the neighborhood asking if anybody heard shots fired or might have captured the incident on surveillance video.
