SOUTH JORDAN, Utah – Police are investigating after two teen boys were found dead in a South Jordan home Friday.

Sgt. Sam Winkler of the South Jordan Police Department said an individual flagged down a passing police car at about 4:30 p.m. and claimed there had been a shooting near 4781 W. Pine Canyon Lane.

Officials entered the home in question and found two deceased individuals in the basement of the home, according to a press release from the South Jordan Police Department. The victims were white males aged 12 and 15, and their names have not been released.

“We arrived and we observed the two deceased individuals and we locked down the house as a crime scene,” Winkler said.

Winkler said three juveniles are being questioned by police in connection with the incident. Winkler said the three are not suspects at this time. Winkler said they are treating the incident as a murder investigation, and he said they are not searching for any outstanding suspects as of Friday night. Police said earlier they believed whatever happened in the home was contained in the home.

    It is a horrible tragedy when children die especially when they are your best friends. The parents of the 12 year old were at my house when they heard the news and their grief was so intense that you could almost feel it pysically. I ask all of you to pray for these families. I only wish that I could tell Crystal that it isn’t real… Just a bad dream. He was a good boy. we will miss him.

    It is a strange feeling when you see the home you used to live in on the news for such a sad and terrible accident, especially when you know the family and the victims. My heart goes out to the parents and the family members affected by this terrible tragedy…

    Not fair, regardless of the situation and semantics of the details. Two young men were stripped of the most basic human right; life. Prayers go out to the families, may your hearts be strong until they heal and may you find closure.
