Reports: Father and son found dead in Pierce County, WI, residence

An investigation is now underway.

An investigation is underway following the discovery of two bodies inside a home near River Falls, Wisconsin.

The two men were found Friday morning in Clifton Township, according to a Facebook post from the Pierce County sheriff.

The sheriff says there is "no threat to the community."

According to KARE 11, law enforcement was brought to the scene by a 911 call from a man saying his father had been shot.

Sheriff Nancy Hove confirmed to the station that both were found dead inside the house when authorities got there.

According to a KSTP report, the man who placed the 911 call and his father were 32 and 60 years old, respectively. 

Hove told the station "there are no other suspects that we are thinking of," though the investigation into the incident is active.

Pierce County is across the St. Croix River from Hastings, Minnesota, and about 45 miles southeast of St. Paul.
