Two people are dead, and a suspect is in custody after police were called shortly after noon Friday to the Queen Mary Park area, just north west of downtown.
“Downtown division members responded to a suspicious person’s call around 111 street and 111th avenue at a residence there,” said the EPS’ Scott Pattison. “Upon arrival they discovered two deceased individuals and with tactical’s assistance they were able to engage and arrest a male suspect.”
The two were found inside the home.
“Basically we were contacted about a suspicious person’s call which typically means that there’s somebody in the neighborhood that’s acting suspiciously, that doesn’t appear to be in that neighborhood or a residence in that area.”
“It’s very preliminary, homicide detectives have taken over the scene so it’s a very grim beginning to the holiday long weekend,” Pattison said.
Next of kin have not been notified, so police aren’t identifying the gender of the victims.
