SEATAC, Wash. -- Two men are dead in an apparent murder-suicide in SeaTac Wednesday morning.

Witnesses say the victim and suspect were talking on the victim's porch in the 2400 block of South 142nd Lane around 7 a.m. according to Sgt. Cindi West with the King County Sheriff's Office.

At some point, the visitor pulled out a gun and shot the resident, then pointed the gun on himself and pulled the trigger.

West would only say both men are in their 20s and initial investigation indicates the two men knew each other, but it's unknown how.

West said deputies have been to the house before to investigate gang-related violence, but it's known if the shooting was gang-related.

Detectives are trying to determine a motive for the shooting.
