York Regional Police have one man in custody after the discovery of four bodies in a Markham, Ont., home.
Officers arrived at the home around 3 p.m. on Sunday after receiving a report of possible injured people inside.
Inside, police discovered four bodies on the upper floors of the two-storey, brick home. A 20-year-old man who met officers at the door was taken into custody. No charges have been laid.
As of Sunday evening, a police spokesman said further details remained murky.
“We have a coroner going through the scene right now,” Constable Andy Pattenden said. “So far, we have yet to receive the genders or ages of the deceased.”
The department’s Homicide Unit made a public appeal for information about the deaths. Several neighbours said they heard and saw nothing to suggest a disturbance at the home before police arrived.
