A Tennessee man has been charged with killing his father and grandmother after he called police to say he found their bodies.
Andre Jones called police early Sunday morning to say he’d found Ronald Jones and Martha Jones in their respective rooms dead from gunshot wounds, WREG reported.
Memphis police officers arrived quickly, and the first on the scene reported smoke and the smell of gunfire in the house. The officer noted no immediate signs of forced entry at either the front or back doors of the house.

Investigators found shell casing near both bodies and then found an empty 9mm magazine in Andre Jones’s room as well as ammunition consistent with the casings they found with the bodies.
Officers also found a gun with what appeared to be blood on it, and video from across the street showed that Andre Jones was the only person seen entering or exiting the house.
He was charged with two counts of first degree murder and use of a firearm while committing a felony.
