TOBYHANNA TOWNSHIP – A Pocono Mountain Regional Police officer conducting routine patrol of a township park early this morning discovered two men who had apparently been shot to death, authorities said.

The 2:30 a.m. discovery has prompted a full-scale investigation into the grisly scene at Coolbaugh Twp. Park, where investigators from the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department and the state police are working to collect evidence, said Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen.

Mr. Allen said one of the two men was found inside a car in the park’s parking lot and another just outside the car. Both are believed to be from Monroe County and to have died from gunshot wounds, he said.
