Two women in their 30s were found fatally shot in a home on Detroit's east side Sunday night, police said.

Police say the women were found just before 9 p.m. on the 14000 block of Tacoma — south of East State Fair, west of Gratiot — when a brother to one of the women checked on her welfare because he hadn't heard from his sister. Instead, he found her and another woman shot dead and called 911.

Two women in their 30s were found fatally shot in a home on Detroit's east side Sunday night, police said.

One of the women is 33, the other 36.

There was no sign of forced entry at the home, said Officer Dan Donakowski, a spokesman for the Detroit Police Department. Police don't know when the victims were shot or how long ago they'd been killed. Homicide detectives are investigating.
