TORONTO — Toronto police have sealed off a street in the east end of the city where four bodies have been found inside a house.
Police, however, have not yet indicated if they are dealing with a quadruple homicide or if a suicide might be involved.
“Officers from the homicide squad are on scene.” Constable Tony Vella. “It’s a large scale investigation.”
While police did not initially confirm any arrests, a neighbour said police took a man away from the scene in handcuffs.
It was too early to release any information about the ages or genders of the four people or the causes of death, Constable Vella added.
“We’re waiting for officers on scene to give us a call to give us an update,” he said.
The house on Welwyn Avenue is in the middle of a residential neighbourhood marked by bungalows.
One media report said a couple in their 50s lived in the home with their son, who is in his 30s.
Police responded to a call about 8:20 a.m.
There was no information yet on whether any arrests had been made or if police have any suspects, Constable Vella said.
