Two men in their early 60s were found dead in a northwest Austin neighborhood after police responded to a call about a shooting shortly after noon on Monday. 

One of the men was found dead in the backyard, while the other was found inside the home. Both were pronounced deceased at the scene.

"We don’t believe that this is a threat to the public," Austin police detective Marcus Davis said at the scene. "We believe that this is an isolated incident between two individuals."

Police responded to a 911 call about shots fired around 12:38 p.m.
