WILDWOOD, Mo. (AP) — St. Louis County police say a man and his son were found dead in a state park near St. Louis.

The bodies were found Tuesday near a hiking trail in Babler State Park in Wildwood. Their names have not been released. The father was middle-aged and the son was in his 20s.

Police didn’t call the deaths a murder-suicide, but spokesman Brian Schellman said investigators are not looking for any suspects. He says both men died of at least one gunshot wound.

A couple walking in the park found the bodies and a vehicle that belonged to one of the men was discovered nearby.

Authorities evacuated the park except for a group of students who were on a camping trip in an area away from where the bodies were found.
