PORT ST. JOHN, Fla. -- Authorities say five people are dead after a shooting in Florida.

The bodies were discovered Tuesday morning after a shooting in a Port St. John neighborhood. Port St. John is about 15 miles west of Cape Canaveral.

The area is known as the "Space Coast" because it is the home of NASA's Kennedy Space Center, home of numerous famed shuttle launches.

Brevard County Sheriff spokesman Andrew Walters says that he has no further details, but that there is no ongoing threat to the community.

Walters says deputies are investigating the deaths as homicides.
