Two people were found dead after officers responded to a home invasion report at a Long Beach home.

The caller reported that he shot someone who broke into his home in the 1000 block of Almond Court.

Sergio Pacheco, 25, and Jose Perez, 18, both of Long Beach, were shot about 12:10 a.m. in the 1000 block of Almond Court, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

Arriving officers found Perez inside the residence with gunshot wounds to his upper body. Pacheco was found lying in a street about two blocks away, also suffering from gunshot wounds to his upper body.

"Preliminary information indicates one of the residents and Pacheco were at one time associates,'' according to a LBPD statement that said Pacheco and Perez allegedly ``arrived at the residence unannounced, forced their way inside and assaulted the two residents. During the altercation, one resident fired a firearm at Pacheco and Perez, who were both struck by the gunfire.''
