Police say a man found dead Friday morning was killed and now detectives are investigating the homicide.

The victim was found inside an apartment on Noam Court in east Columbus, off Courtright Road. Officers initially responding to the call about 8:00 am quickly roped off an area at the apartment complex and called for detectives. A second person was found injured and was rushed into surgery at Mount Carmel East hospital.

Blood could be seen on the doors of at least two neighboring apartments, but officers haven't said where that may come from. Several officers were on scene Friday morning as they worked to investigate.

Police have not yet released any information about the identities of the victims.

This story is developing and will be updated as more information becomes available.
