HIGHLAND COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A stepfather and stepson who died in an apparent murder-suicide were identified early Tuesday as Tony Brown, 54, and Tyler Faulkner, 26.

Their bodies were found when authorities responded to a report of a custody dispute on Muskie Drive near Rocky Fork Lake about 7 p.m. 

Then, a second call came in for shots fired.

Highland County deputies said they found Brown dead on the front porch. Faulkner was also found dead inside the home from an apparent suicide.

According to Highland County Sheriff Donald Barrera, the older man walked the stepson's kids out to the car of the soon-to-be ex-wife of the stepson. The stepson shot the stepfather as he was walking back toward the home.

Barrera said the stepfather and stepson rode together to and from work Monday.  Both reside at the home on Muskie Drive.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is assisting the investigation.
