INDIANAPOLIS -

Police responding to a report of a person shot are now investigating an apparent murder suicide.

Officers found 50-year-old Derek Tully of Indianapolis shot in a residence in the 10000 block of Courageous Drive on the northeast side around 3 a.m. Sunday. John Caffrey, 48, of Indianapolis, was found shot outside the home. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators believe the victims had been friends for a long time and may have had an ongoing dispute. Police believe Caffrey entered Tully's home and shot him, then left the house and apparently shot himself.

No other injuries were reported in the shootings. Police recovered the weapon suspected in the incident and are continuing to talk to witnesses in the ongoing investigation.
