Maricopa County Sheriff's officials say multiple dead bodies have been found inside a home in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert.

There's no immediate word Tuesday on how many bodies or their ages or genders.

But sheriff's spokeswoman Courtney Palma says they are being investigated as suspicious deaths at this time.

She says deputies responded about 9 p.m. Monday to a home in unincorporated Gilbert near Power and Chandler Heights roads.

Deputies arrived on the scene and reported funding several dead people inside the home.

Palma says homicide detectives are still at the scene investigating the deaths.
