Police found two men tied up and shot to death in the basement of a Brooklyn home that they say had been broken into and torn apart, according to a published report.
Both victims inside the Pulaski Street home in Bedford-Stuyvesant had been shot in the head, police said. Officers got to the house around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday after the father of one of the victims called in to report a robbery, police said.
The father said the door had been forced open, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene. One victim was described as 30 years old. There was no immediate information about the second man.
Both victims were found with their hands bound behind their backs. It wasn't immediately clear if anything had been stolen from the home.
The investigation is ongoing.
A cousin of one of the victims told the Journal his relative was "a great man."
"We're hurting right now ... he was about his family," Taquan Bostic told the paper.
Bostic's cousin reportedly was married with three children. His wife was pregnant.
