Posted: Updated:

SIMLA, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say two men are dead after being found with gunshot wounds near a suspected illegal marijuana grow on Colorado's Eastern Plains.

The Elbert County Sheriff's Office said the men were found at a home in a rural area west of the town of Simla, about 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Colorado Springs, Thursday morning. In a statement, the sheriff's office said investigators believe the marijuana operation was a "contributing factor" in their deaths.
