Detectives from the Marathon County Sheriff’s Office are investigating a double shooting that occurred at a home on County Road N in the Town of Hull, approximately five miles east of Colby, in which two men were found deceased.

The preliminary investigation has led investigators to believe the crime was a murder-suicide and there is no threat to the public.

The Marathon County Sheriff’s Office 911 Communications Center received a call Saturday evening from a man who reported arriving home to find his father and uncle both dead inside the home.

Deputies responded and found the two men deceased in the residence with apparent gunshot wounds. A firearm was present at the scene. A motive for the shooting has not been identified.

The identity of the victims is being withheld at this time pending family notifications.

The investigation continued overnight with assistance from the Marathon County District Attorney’s Office and the Marathon County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Due to the nature of the ongoing investigation and pending autopsies, no other information is being released at this time.
