Police were called Friday morning by a building resident who reported a car in the lot with a body inside, said Cpl. Robert Haynes.Police found one body in the car's back seat with its feet sticking out the rear window. A second was found underneath the first victim, he said. Police found two other bodies in the trunk, Haynes said.

"There were signs of violence, blood," Haynes said. "In all likelihood, some gunshots were involved."

The victims, still unidentified, were in their late teens or early 20s, he said.
