(Reuters) - Five people were found dead from gunshot wounds inside an Arizona home on Tuesday in a possible murder-suicide, the Arizona Daily Star newspaper reported.

Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villaseñor told the newspaper that officers responded to the home around 6 p.m. local time after a visitor reported seeing an injured person inside.

The five bodies were found throughout the house and it appeared that all the victims had died on Tuesday, Villaseñor told the newspaper.

The website for the Tuscon Police Department said the incident was an apparent murder-suicide with multiple victims.

But Villaseñor told the Daily Star that it was too early to say for sure what had happened.
