Omaha, NE - Omaha police responded to 40th and Grant, just south of Lake Street Sunday afternoon and discovered two men dead.

Authorities have identified the victims as 40-year-old Bernardo Noriega and 47-year-old Carlos Morales. 

Friends say Morales was the owner of the Genuine Auto Body Shop.   Friends of the victim showed up at the scene.  Ryan Stander told KMTV Action 3 News, he knew Morales and said " he was a good man who put money in my pocket and taught me the trade of auto body. "   Stander said he lived with Carlos for more than a year adding " he treated me good.  He took me under his wing."

Police did not say how the two men died but another friend at the scene, told us, she had been told that somebody shot and killed Carlos.  The woman, named Becky,  said her sister was engaged to Carlos, " I have no idea who would do this to him."

Police are still trying to identify the second victim, and will release his name when next of kin is notified.
