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.
