DALLAS — Two men were found dead and another was hospitalized after a shooting in far northwest Dallas on Friday morning, police said.

Dallas police said officers responded around 7:30 a.m. Friday to a "call for service" at the Timbers Apartments in the 3500 block of Timberglen Road.

Police said they found a male victim in a breezeway dead from a gunshot wound. Officers then found two more shooting victims inside an apartment, according to police.

One of the victims found inside a unit died at the scene, police said. The other was transported to a hospital and is currently stable.

The identities of the victims have not yet been released.
