DALLAS (KRLD) - Police in DeSoto are investigating a shooting that killed two people and injured three others. It happened Sunday evening at an apartment complex on West Wintergreen Road near Hampton Road. 

The initial calls to 911 described the incident as a "home invasion", with several people rushing into the apartment.

Police are still trying to confirm if that was the case. Police say 21-year-old David Daniel Young, Jr. and 43-year-old William Leon Smith were killed.

Three other people were shot and injured. They're receiving medical treatment and are expected to survive.

Police have been questioning those survivors and collecting evidence at the crime scene. Officials with the DeSoto Police Department say that all subjects involved in the incident have been accounted for and that the department does not believe there is an immediate threat to the public.
