BIRMINGHAM, Alabama (KRON) – Police in Birmingham, Alabama are investigating after two people were found dead inside a house Thursday.

Police say they were initially called to the area because of a young child seen wandering alone outside.

They responded, and found the child wearing clothes stained with blood.

The child was able to lead the officers back to the home, which is when police discovered the two bodies inside.

Johnny Williams of  Birmingham Police:

“Of course it’s alarming for a child to wander the streets in that manner. Thankfully the child was alert enough to lead us back to this location, and we can locate the victims. But right now we need — the most important thing is for anyone to come forward that may have information on this investigation.”

Police say the  child was not hurt. 

Further details were not released.
