Deputies responding to a call about a shooting in Alabama early Friday found seven people dead inside a home and the house on fire, WHNT-TV reported.

Morgan County deputies were able to put out the fire before firefighters got to the scene, and that’s when they found seven adults dead in the house, according to the television station.

The deaths will be investigated as homicides, the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post Friday.

The post says there are no suspects in custody but there’s also no further threat at the scene.
