Residential Burglary

This morning at approximately 9am, Sheriff's Deputies responded to County Rd 203 on a report of a Residential  Burglary and Suspicious Vehicle. While Deputies were responding, a second call was received from the property owner stating 2 males had came to the property in an attempt to remove the vehicle,  which the owner believed to contain items taken during the Burglary. An altercation occurred between the property owner and the two males, during which, shots were fired by the property owner. When Deputies arrived, two males were located with gunshot wounds. West Chilton Fire and RPS Ambulance responded and both males were determined to be deceased. Initial investigation does indicate that a Burglary had taken place at the residence and that the suspicious vehicle reported by the property owner is connected to that Burglary.  The investigation is ongoing. Based on evidence located at the scene, Investigators do believe additional suspects and an additional vehicle were involved in the Burglary.  Anyone having additional information is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office.
