Just hours after he was released from jail, a man is accused of killing two people in a violent attack. Aaron Livingston was arrested and booked into the Pierce County jail on two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder, according to county records.
 
Tacoma police are investigating the double homicide that happened Friday night.
 
Police say they responded to a welfare check at a home in the 1200 block of South 19th St just before midnight. When officers arrived, they found two people dead in the home.
 
Another person was found injured and was taken to the hospital, but is expected to be OK.
 
Tacoma Police confirmed Livingston was arrested at the home Thursday in connection to an assault involving one of the victims.  County records show he was released from jail Friday night.
 
"There is literally no reason he should have been out of jail at all,” said Rhea Love, friend of victims.
 
Tacoma police provided very few details and are not releasing any information about the victims. Investigators also won’t say how they were killed.
 
"They are re-creating what happened inside. They are doing a complete investigation," said officer Loretta Cool.

Some people in the neighborhood, who didn't want to go on camera, believe the attack was the result of a love triangle.
 
Aaron Livingston has not yet been charged.
