LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A 9-month-old boy was removed from a home in Louisville's Chickasaw neighborhood where two people were found dead Tuesday afternoon.

According to MetroSafe dispatchers, officers were called to the home in 900 block of 42nd Street when they discovered the bodies around 5 p.m.

"I didn't hear anything," said Marilyn Brooks, who was two doors down at the time the bodies were discovered. "We've been over here all day and I haven't heard nothing."

Brooks said she left for about 20 minutes and when she returned the quiet street was covered with police tape. 

"When I got back from picking my daughter up from school the door was wide open and the police was coming out and the next thing you know it was like ten minutes later they brought the baby out," said Brooks.

The 9-month-old boy lived with his father and mother in the home.

"The baby was ok, but when they brought the baby out he was crying real bad, so you could tell the baby had been crying for a little while," said Brooks.

Police said the baby was not injured, but was taken to an area hospital to be checked out. 

Vincent Starling is the baby's father's uncle. "It's very emotional," he said. "He's very loved, nice, gentle person that is not out here in the streets like that and it's terrible."

Starling said the couple stayed out of trouble.

"I know its nothing to do with drugs or nothing like that sort, but I mean I'm lost," said Starling. "I don't know what's going on."

Early on in the investigation, police said there were obvious signs of trauma to both victims, but did not release any further details.

"We don't want to speculate on exactly what happened, but at this time it does not appear that there is any threat to the community," said LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley.

Smiley said police are not searching for any suspects in the case.

The identities of the two people who were found inside the home have not been released.
