Sheriff's homicide investigators are responding to a property in a rural area near Littlerock where a "death investigation" is underway Tuesday afternoon after two men were found deceased.
Authorities were called to the property in the 10600 block of Hampel Avenue between 12:30 and 12:45 p.m., according to Lt. Robert Farkas of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Palmdale Station.
They arrived there after receiving a call about a "person down" and soon learned that a family member visiting the property had discovered the two men unconscious and suffering from gunshot wounds, officials later said in a news release.
The sheriff's Homicide Bureau is handling the case, Farkas said.
A sheriff's news release said the two Hispanic men were pronounced dead at the scene. One of the men, who was 41 years old, was a resident of the property.
"There is no suspect information available at this time and the investigation is on-going," the release stated.
Multiple deputies were responding at what appeared to be a sprawling property with several residences, construction and agricultural equipment, trailers and horses, video showed. Yellow police tape cordoned off large sections of the property.
The address is in the unincorporated area of the Antelope Valley off Pearblossom Highway, east of of the community of Littlerock.
On Tuesday, two families from the same town responded to the area because their loved ones, two men, have been missing since January.
Lindsey Parra told KTLA that her uncle, as well as another woman's father, have been missing since Jan. 14, and they both wanted to see if their loved ones were the victims.
