A burglary and a robbery led to a shooting that left two men dead early Saturday, Lawrence Police said Monday morning.

One of the dead men was identified by police as Gage Hauk, 18, McLouth. His body was found on the back porch of the house at 1311 Del.

The body of the 20-year-old man found inside the house was the occupant but he has not been officially identified because of his wounds, police Sgt. Paul Fellers said.

According to Fellers, Hauk and the 16-year-old boy in custody went to the residence to burglarize and rob it. The 20-year-old occupant shot Hauk. Then, the 16-year-old allegedly shot the occupant, Fellers said.

The 16-year-old fled the scene on foot.

Police found a shotgun in the house and a rifle about a block away, Fellers said.
